A Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Osogbo has Tuesday remanded two persons in prison custody for allegedly killing a student from University of Osun State.
The accused persons, Yusu, 49, and Adeoti, 55, are facing a three-count charge of conspiracy, murder and unlawful possession of human parts.
The prosecutor, Mireti Wilson, told the court that the two committed the offence on June 26 at about 9p.m at Oke Baale in Osogbo.
Wilson said that the accused persons conspired to kill Timileyin Oluwafemi Sonibare with a pestle and cut his head, hands and other parts.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened sections 324, 319 and 242 of the Criminal Code cap 34 vol.11 Laws of Osun, 2003.
However, the two accused persons pleaded not guilty to the charges. The defence counsel, Kazeem Badmus, prayed the magistrate to grant his clients bail in the most liberal terms.
But the magistrate, Mary Awodele, denied the accused bail.
She ordered that the accused persons be remanded in Ilesa prison until July 25, when the case would come up for mention.
