A Lagos State Magistrate's
Court sitting at Ebute-Meta
has remanded two men,
Adedoyin Oyekanmi, 23; and
Erinmole Adetokunbo, 26; for
allegedly beheading a seven- year-old boy, Kazeem Rabiu.



The magistrate, Mrs. O.A.
Fowowe-Erusiafe, said the
two defendants should be
remanded in custody pending
the release of legal advice
from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.


Recall, Oyekanmi and
Adetokunbo, a pastor, had
allegedly lured the boy from
his parents' house on Sotunyo Street to the church's premises on
Oke-Oniburokun Street, Odokekere, Ikorodu.

They were said to have
beheaded him and buried the
head around the church's
altar, while the body was
dumped in a canal. Adetokunbo was later
apprehended by residents.

He was said to have
confessed to the crime,
naming Oyekanmi as his
accomplice. The apprehended duo
reportedly led detectives to
the church, where the victim's remains were recovered, with
an angry mob consequently
destroying the church and asking for jungle justice.


The suspects were later
transferred to the State
Criminal Investigation and
Intelligence Department,
Yaba before being arraigned
on Thursday on three counts of murder. The police prosecutor,
Sergeant Maria Dauda, said
the offences were punishable
under sections 233, 223 and
165 of the Criminal Law of
Lagos State, Nigeria, 2011.

The defendants' pleas were
not taken, just as they were
not represented by any
counsel. The prosecutor filed an
application for their remand
in prison, citing Section 264
of the Administration of
Criminal Justice Law of Lagos
State, Nigeria, 2011. The magistrate remanded
them in prison and adjourned the case till July 24, 2017.
