Court remands pastor in prison for alleged murder

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 is remanded in prison until the next adjourned date of Jan. 15 for a mention.
