A 50-year-old Ghanaian, Kwasi Abubakar, was yesterday remanded in prison by an Ebute Metta Magistrates’ Court, for allegedly killing a co-tenant.

Magistrate O. A. Komolafe, ordered that the accused be kept behind bars, pending advice from the state Director of Public Prosecutions, DPP.

Abubakar, who resides at 54, Adebanjo Street, Papa Ashafa in Dopemu area of Lagos, is facing a charge of unlawful killing.

The prosecutor, Inspector Frank Inah, had told the court that the accused allegedly killed a co-tenant, Mr Ranti Elegbede.

“The accused went out and while returning home at night, he fell into the gutter. A shout for help by him attracted other co-tenants, including the deceased, who tried to rescue him.

“He turned to the deceased, gave him a blow and he fainted immediately. He was, however, confirmed dead at the hospital,” Inah said.

Inah said what infuriated the accused was the deceased’s probing question:“Where are you coming from this night?”

Magistrate Komolafe adjourned the case to July 17 for mention.

Also at the Ebute Metta Magistrate Court, yesterday, a 36-year-old Beninoise, Daniel Gajo, was remanded at the Ikoyi Prisons, over the alleged murder of his second wife, Esther.

The Magistrate, Mrs M.O. Tanimola, ordered that the accused be detained, pending legal advice from the office of the state DPP.

Gajo, who resides at Labora Village, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, is facing a two-count charge of unlawful killing and attempt to commit suicide.

The prosecutor, Cpl. Ishola Samuel, told the court that the accused killed Esther on June 4 at their residence. He said the accused stabbed his wife to death with a kitchen knife over her alleged infidelity. He later tried to take his own life.
