An Iyaganku Chief Magistrates’ Court in Ibadan, presided over by Emmanuel Idowu, ordered the remand of Fatai Gbeminiyi, 50, at Abolongo Correctional facility, Oyo Town on Monday over alleged murder.
Mr Gbeminiyi of Abebi Area of Ibadan was charged with murder, however, Chief Magistrate Idowu did not take the plea of the accused because of the court’s lack of jurisdiction.
He ordered that Mr Gbeminiyi be kept at the correctional facility pending advice by the Oyo State Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) and adjourned the matter till October 27 for mention.
Prosecution Counsel, Iyabo Oladoyin, had earlier told the court that Mr Gbeminiyi unlawfully caused the death of Tinuke Olayiwola, 39, on August 20.
She said Mr Gbeminiyi clubbed the late Tinuke to death at the Abebi area in Ibadan, using a pestle during a fracas, adding that the offence contravened the Criminal Code of Oyo State.
