Court remands two for alleged murder in Ibadan

An Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court in Ibadan on Thursday ordered the remand of two individuals, Shamsun Mohammed, 25, and Ya’u Yinusa, 25, in an Ibadan correctional facility for alleged murder.

The defendants were charged with conspiracy and murder, but their addresses were not disclosed.

Mrs S. Zubair, the magistrate, refused to hear the defendants’ plea for lack of jurisdiction.

She ordered that the case file be returned to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal guidance.

Zubair then adjourned the case until January 30, 2024, for further consideration.

According to the prosecutor, Inspector Oladejo Balogun, the defendants committed the crime on November 22 around 4 pm in the Bodija area of Ibadan.

Balogun said that the defendants and those at large illegally killed Usman Umaru, 25, by stabbing him in the chest with a broken bottle.

He said that the offence violated Sections 324 and 319 of the Oyo State Criminal Laws of 2000.
