Siblings land in prison for alleged killing 49-year-old man

An Iyaganku Magistrate’s Court, Ibadan, on Tuesday, ordered the remand of two siblings, Latunde Alayemi, 50 and Ayoola Alayemi, 54, in a correctional facility over the alleged killing of a 49-year-old man.

The duo, whose addresses were not provided, were charged with conspiracy and murder.

NAN reports that the Magistrate, Mrs Kausarat Ayofe, did not take the plea of the defendants for want of jurisdiction.

Ayofe directed the police to return the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP for legal advice.

She, thereafter, adjourned the case till Sept. 2 for mention.

The Prosecutor, Insp Toyin Ibrahim, told the court that the defendants committed the offences on June 23 at about 12.45am in the Moniya area of Ibadan.

Ibrahim said the defendants unlawfully caused the death of one David Olagoke, 49, by matcheting him all over his body.

He said the offences contravened Sections 516 and 324 of the Criminal Laws of Oyo State, 2000.
