An Ilorin Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday remanded a 30-year-old labourer, Emmanuel Wakili of Gbugbu village, Lafiagi, over alleged killing of his friend, Yahya Husseini, over money.


The Magistrate, Afusat Alege, ordered that Wakili be remanded at Oke-kura Prison Yard, Ilorin, pending the outcome of police investigation on the alleged murder and adjourned further hearing on the case
until Feb. 9.


Wakili is facing a one-count charge of Culpable Homicide, contrary to Section 221 of the Penal Code.

Jubril said Husseini was confirmed dead on arrival at Lafiagi hospital.


The prosecutor urged the court to remand Wakili in prison custody and the magistrate granted
his plea.
