Court take action on man who allegedly killed police sergeant in prison

A 23-year-old man, Emmanuel Olowu, has been remanded at the Ikoyi Prison, Lagos, for allegedly shooting to death a Police Sergeant, News Agency of Nigeria reports.

The order was made by Chief Magistrate Mr O.O. Olatunji of the Ebute Meta Magistrates’ Court sitting on Friday.

When the accused was put in the dock, the magistrate did not take his plea, but ordered his remand in prison, pending the outcome of legal advice from the Office of State Director of Public Prosecutions.

The alleged offence contravened Section 223 and 233 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015, which prescribes death sentence for convicted offenders.

Chief Magistrate Olatunji adjourned the matter until June 26.
