Court remands Three over alleged killing of farmer in Kwara

EMERGNECY DIGEST- An Ilorin Magistrate’s Court remanded three accused at the correctional facility in the Kwara capital on Thursday over murder charges.

They were charged with the murder of one, Jamiu Ibrahim, 45, in a robbery operation.

The accused are Isiaka Sabi, Hassan Bature and Ardo Umaru.

State prosecution counsel, Mr Thomas Adebayo, had earlier told the court that the three suspects conspired and killed Ibrahim of Idofin in Oke-Ero Local Government Area of the state on June 29.

He said the incident was reported at Oke-Ero Police Station, but investigation was transferred the state Criminal Investigation Department, Ilorin, on July 7.

He said the accused took their victim from his room on the farm settlement at midnight on June 29, to a guinea corn farm where he was shot and abandoned to die in a pool of his own blood.

Adebayo told the court that investigation revealed that the accused killed Ibrahim on the invitation of one Sabi Isiaka, a farm labourer working for Ibrahim because he did not give him money.

He added that efforts made by members of a vigilance group at Oke-Ero led to the arrest of the accused.

He said that during interrogation, Isiaka confessed to have conspired with his gang, including Janyo Dogo and Ahiyah, who are still at large to rob the deceased.

Counsel to the complainant, Shuaib Oniye urged the court to remand the suspects in prison, pending the conclusion of police investigation.

Presiding Magistrate Aminat Mogaji granted the application and ordered that the accused be kept in custody until Sept. 1 when the case would be mentioned again.
