A Lagos State Magistrate Court sitting in Igbosere on Monday remanded a 22-year-old Togolese cook, Sunday Adefonou Anani, in prison over the alleged murder of his boss, Opeyemi Badamosi Chairman of Credit Switch Technology.
Chief Magistrate Mrs O.O Oshin ordered that Anani be kept in custody pending the release of a Legal Advice on the position of the case by the office of the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP).
The accused person was brought before the court on a one count charge of murder, which the police claimed he committed on October 31, 2018, at the deceased’s resident at 3b, Onikoyi Lane, Parkview Estate Ikoyi Lagos.
The police alleged that Anani, in order to rob the deceased, stabbed him to death with a kitchen knife.
According to the charge the offence committed is contrary to section 222 and Punishable Under section 223 of the Criminal laws of Lagos State 2015.
The police Prosecutor, John Eboseremene told the court that he had an application to remand the suspect in prison custody under section 115, of the administration of criminal justice law and 264, of administration of criminal justice law 2015.
He said, “We urged the court to remand the defendant in prison, for 30 days in the first instance according to the law.”
In his reply, the defendant’s counsel, Jamiu Alapo, who said he was not objecting to the application to remand his client in custody pointed out that the suspect doesn’t understand English Language.
Magistrate Oshin, in her ruling, held that “In view of the application by the police, the defendant is hereby remanded in prison for 30 days in the first instance, under sections 115 and 264 of the administration of criminal justice law 2015, pending the release of a legal advice from the office of the Directorate of Public Prosecution DPP.”
The case was then adjourned till December 18.
However after the court sitting Anani, who was handcuffed was crying while his counsel was speaking with him.
