Court Remands Two for Killing UNIOSUN Student

An Osogbo Chief Magistrates Court in Osun on Tuesday remanded two persons in an Ilesa prison for the alleged murder of a UNIOSUN student.

The accused persons, Izak Yusu, 49, and Abdulkazeem Adeoti, 55, are facing a three-count of conspiracy, murder and unlawful possession of human parts.

The prosecutor, ASP 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 among themselves to kill Timileyin Oluwafemi Sonibare with a pestle and cut his head, hands and other parts.

He that said the victim was a student of the University of Osun until his death.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened sections 324, 319 and 242 of the Criminal Code cap 34 vol.11 Laws of Osun, 2003.

The two accused persons, however, pleaded not guilty to the three-count charge of conspiracy, murder and unlawful possession.

The defence counsel, Mr Kazeem Badmus, prayed the magistrate to grant his clients bail in the most liberal terms.

Mrs Mary Awodele, the Magistrate, however, declined to grant the accused bail due to the magnitude of the offence they were alleged to have committed.

She ordered the accused persons to be remanded in Ilesa prison until July 25, when the case would come up for mention.
