Court remands 2 vagrants for alleged murder



An Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, ordered that two vagrants, be remanded in Agodi Correctional facility, Ibadan, for alleged murder.

The police charged Lukuman Yisa, 31, and Usman Salami, 26, with two counts of conspiracy and murder.

Magistrate O. A. Akande, did not take the plea of Yisa and Salami, for want in jurisdiction.

Akande said they are to be remanded pending the legal advice from the Oyo State Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).

She adjourned the matter until Sept. 27, for mention.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp Gbemisola Adedeji told the court that Yisa and Salami and others at large, conspired and committed the offence.
