Two suspected persons recently arrested by Osun State Police Command in connection with the murder of a Student of Osun State University (UNIOSUN), Rofiat Damilola Adebisi, have been remanded in prison custody by a state Magistrate Court sitting in Osogbo, the state capital.
Elijah Oyebode(22), and Yusuf Ajibade(25) were ordered to be remanded in custody at Ilesa prison due to the gravity of the offence committed.
Oyebode who is a commercial driver had earlier confessed that he hypnotized the deceased, who had boarded his vehicle from Ipetu Ijesa to Osogbo.
Oyebode said he subsequently delivered her to the herbalist, one Mr Jelili who paid him N10,000 for the job.
He added that the herbalist had given him a charm and told him to bring any young lady who had not given birth to a child.
It was further gathered that the second accused person, Yusuf Oyebode allegedly received one Apple Iphone 5 valued at N100,000 stolen from the deceased after she was killed.
While briefing the court on Tuesday, Police Prosecutor, Mr Mireti Wilson, told the court that the accused and other suspects currently at large committed the alleged offence on December 23, 2016 at Egbeda in Iragbiji, Osun state.
Wilson further explained that Oyebode and his accomplices killed the student while Ajibade unlawfully received the stolen phone.
He said the accused have allegedly committed the offence contrary to and punishable under Section 324, 319(1) and 427 of the Criminal Code Cap 34 Vol. Law of Osun State, 2002.
The court did not take the plea of the accused persons, due to the incompetent of the court to hear the matter.
Ruling on the matter, Magistrate Olusola Aluko ordered the two accused to be remanded in prison just as he directed the Police to duplicate the case file and forward it to the Directorate of Public Prosecution for legal advice.
He thereafter adjourned the case till 30 March, 2017 for mention at court four.
