Four men were on Tuesday remanded in Ikoyi Prisons in Lagos State for allegedly conspiring to beat up a man to death.
The police arraigned Wasiu Wahab, 28; Yusuf Adebayo, 28; Ramoni Ibrahim, 28; and Yusuf Adegbite, 25, on two counts of conspiracy and murder before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.
The Chief Magistrate, Mr O.O. Olatunji, ordered the remand of the four men, pending an advice from the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions.
Olatunji adjourned until Aug. 26, after refusing the plea of the defendants.
Earlier, the Police Prosecutor, Insp. Oladele Adebayo, told the court that the defendants committed the offences on July 8 at Badore Jetty in Ajah, Lagos.
He alleged that the defendants had conspired and beaten up one Olamode Omolegbe, 22, to death during a street fight, NAN reports.
Adebayo said that the offences contravened Sections 223 and 233 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
