Man Docked For Alleged Murder In Ibadan

The Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court in Ibadan, Oyo State capital on Wednesday remanded 44-year-old Kazeem Adiatu in a correctional facility over the alleged murder of Temitope, a 20-year-old woman.

Adiatu, whose home address was not supplied, was charged with a murder case but pleaded not guilty to the allegation.

The Magistrate, Mr Olaolu Olanipekun, did not take the defendant’s plea due to lack of jurisdiction.

He asked the police to send over the case file to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal guidance.
