Farmer arrested for allegedly killing his mum and brother in Kwara

A farmer identified as Mufutau Adekola has been arraigned before a Magistrate court in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, over the alleged murder of his mother and brother.


The police charged Adekola with culpable homicide contrary to the provisions of Section 221 of the Penal Code Law.


The Prosecution Counsel, Insp Folorunsho Zacheaus, on Friday March 25, told the court that Adekola attacked his mother, Rafatu and brother, Mukaila, while they were sleeping on March 9, at Oke-Ode in Ifelodun Local Government Area of the state. Zachaeus did not state the reason Adekola gave for carrying out this dastardly act.


Magistrate Ibrahim Dasuki, who did not take the plea of Adekola for lack of jurisdiction, ordered his remand at the Oke-Kura Correctional Centre pending the conclusion of the investigation.


Dasuki adjourned the case until April 25 for further mention.
