A man, Ajape Abiola Akeem, a.k.a. ´No Case’ who was arrested in connection with the death of a man from a rival group over leadership tussle has been arraigned before an Ilorin Magistrate’s Court.

The accused was dragged before the court on a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide, which contradicted Sections 97 and 221 of Penal Code Law. The accused had since been ordered to be remanded at the Federal Prison Yard, Oke-kura, Ilorin.

The long arm of the law caught up with the accused following a tip-off on April 29, 2018 at the Divisional Police Headquarters, Otte, Kwara State that the accused killed one Isiaka Sikiru of Abe Compound, Otte Area, Kwara state.

According to the information, the deceased was at home with his wife, Rashidat Sikiru when one Rafiu of Otte area (now at large) allegedly came to invite him to settle a lingering issue between them.

Meanwhile, the deceased’s wife later received information that her husband had been attacked by some hoodlums and when she rushed to the scene, she met her husband lying unconscious. The wife immediately rushed her husband to the hospital where he was confirmed dead.

According to the Police First Information Report (FIR), investigation conducted at the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Ilorin led to the arrest of Kamorudeen Suleiman, Taofeek Shehu and the accused who was on the run since the day of the incidence.

The FIR stated that the accused were mercenaries of a rival group called ‘Winning Base’ that attacked and killed the deceased of ‘Olorunjuedalo’ group over leadership tussle between the two rival groups.

The FIR added that the accused confirmed their membership of ‘Winning Base’ that killed the deceased and mentioned other members now at large that took part in the fight that led to the death of the deceased.

The prosecutor, Mr. Adebayo Thomas told the court that the alleged offence was capital in nature and not ordinarily bailable. He urged the court to remand the accused in prison custody pending the determination of the case.

The Magistrate, Mrs. Mercy Adebola agreed with the submission of the prosecutor and ordered that the accused be remanded at the Federal Prison yard, Oke-kura, Ilorin.
