Pastor remanded in prison custody for murder

By Opeyemi Aremu

An Ado Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday ordered that a 40-year-old pastor, Olakanye Oni, accused of killing  a 39-year-old woman, be remanded in prison.

Oni, whose address was not provided at the court, pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder.

The prosecutor, Insp. Johnson Okunade, told the court that the murder suspect committed the offence ‎on or about Dec. 13, 2017 at Ado Ekiti.

He alleged that Oni committed the offence through diabolical means because something strange was found in the private part of the murdered woman.

According to the prosecutor, the offence contravenes Sections ‎325 of the Criminal Code Cap C16 Law of Ekiti, 2012.

The chief magistrate, Mr Aderopo Adegboye, thereafter ordered that Oni be remanded in prison until the next adjourned date of Jan. 15 for mention.
