A 62-year-old Lagos State’s governorship aspirant, on the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC, Dr. Tola Kasali, and two others were yesterday arraigned before an Ebute-Metta Chief Magistrate’s Court, over alleged murder of one Musiliu Ogboye Lamidi.

The other defendants include a former Commissioner for Special Duties in Lagos, Folami Musiliu, 65, a Special Adviser to Lagos State government, and Tobun Abiodun Lukman, 35, a Chief Security Officer to one of the politicians in Lagos.

They were also alleged to have been in possession of a pump action Avar Magnum gun with number 6381, without appropriate authority.

The defendants are facing a three-count charge of conspiracy, murder and illegal possession of fire arms.

The plea of the defendants were not taken after the charges were read to them.

Magistrate Demi-Ajayi, however, ordered the prosecution to duplicate the case file and forward it to DPP for advice and adjourned the matter to December 11.
