A Magistrates’ Court in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital city, yesterday, ordered that a 24-year-old man, Michael Oyejide, be remanded in Ibara Prison custody for allegedly r*ping his 18-year-old friend, Morenike Ajayi, to death.

Michael is facing a two-count of rape and murder.

According to the prosecutor, Cpl Moshood Hammed, the accused and one other, at large, committed the offence on January 8, at Ijeja in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

“Around 8p.m., Oyejide, alias MI, celebrated his birthday at Adigbe and some ladies were invited. Later at night, the accused and one other got the victim, who is also a friend, drunk.

“The accused and his friend took the victim to his house at Ijeja and raped her to death.”

Hammed told the court that the suspect and the other person pretended to be sympathizers and rushed Morenike to the hospital, where she was confirmed dead on arrival.

“The management of the hospital reported the case to the Police, which led to Oyejide’s arrest,” Hammed said.

He argued that the offence contravened Sections 516, 357 and 358 of the Criminal Laws of Ogun, 2006.

Magistrate Martins Akinyemi adjourned the case to June 5, pending the Director of Public Prosecution’s advice, for further hearing on the matter.
