A couple, 27-year-old David Omoregbe, a transporter, and his 22-year-old girlfriend, Temisan Bolodeoku, an apprentice tailor, on Tuesday, appeared before a Yaba magistrates’ court, Lagos, for allegedly killing the Bolodeoku’s former lover. They are both facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and murder.
The prosecutor, Inspector Rita Momoh, said that the duo committed the offence at about 12.30 p.m. on October 2, at No. 20, Adeojo Street, Isheri-Oshun, Lagos State. She said that the deceased, one Kehinde Owasoye, was Bolodeoku’s ex-lover, adding that “Omoregbe, who is the present lover of Bolodeoku, learnt that the woman was seeing the deceased again and got upset.’’
She said that on the fateful day, Omoregbe traced Owasoye and Bolodeoku to the said address, where he found them together in bed and stabbed the deceased with a pair of scissors, causing Owasoye’s death. According to the prosecutor, the offences contravene sections 221 and 231 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Lagos State.
Meanwhile, the magistrate, Mrs M.O. Tanimola, did not take the plea of the defendants, but ordered that they be remanded pending the advice of the State Director of Public Prosecution. Tanimola, thereafter, adjourned the case to November 12.
