Court remands teenager, one other for murder

An Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court on Monday ordered that a teenager and his accomplice be remanded in Ikoyi prison over alleged murder.
The accused, Bidemi Adefor, 17, and Lekan Sanusi, 21, were arraigned on a two-count charge for conspiracy and murder.

The plea of the duo was, however, not taken.

The Magistrate, Mr T A. Elias, ordered that the duo should be remanded for the next 30 days pending the legal advice from the State Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
Earlier, the police prosecutor, Insp. Moses Uamdemevbo, said that the accused persons committed the offences on Feb. 1, at about 5.40 p.m., at Iddo terminus.

He alleged that the duo and six others now at large had rounded up the deceased, Idris Aloma, stabbed him with broken bottles and rip his intestines.

The offences committed contravened Sections 219 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos state, 2011.

Section 219 provides for death sentence for offenders while 409 prescribes a two year jail term.

Further hearing has been adjourned till March 23 for legal advice.
