Ibadan Magistrates’ Court Remands Two Over Alleged Murder in Ibadan

In a significant development, the Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court in Ibadan has remanded Shamsun Mohammed, 25, and Ya’u Yinusa, 25, at the Ibadan correctional facility for their alleged involvement in a murder case. The defendants are facing charges of conspiracy and murder, according to information obtained by Naija News.

During the court proceedings, Magistrate S. Zubair declined to hear the defendant’s plea, citing a lack of jurisdiction. Consequently, she directed that the case file be returned to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal guidance. The magistrate scheduled the next hearing for January 30, 2024, to continue deliberations on the matter.

Inspector Oladejo Balogun, the prosecutor, revealed that the crime occurred in the Bodija area of Ibadan on November 22, around 4 p.m. The defendants, along with unidentified individuals, allegedly took the life of Usman Umaru, aged 25, by inflicting a fatal stab wound to his chest using a shattered bottle.

This act of violence violates Sections 324 and 319 of the Oyo State Criminal Laws of 2000, as highlighted by Prosecutor Balogun.

In a related incident, justice has been served in South Africa as three individuals, Sikhumbuzo Jacob Hlophe, 38, Thokozani David Hlophe, 28, and Thokozane Obert Zwane, 30, were sentenced to 18 years in prison for the collective sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl in Morgenzon, Mpumalanga.

The sentencing occurred on December 4, 2023, following a thorough investigation by the Standerton Family Violence, Child Protection, and sexual offences (FCS) unit.

The court heard that the trio raped the victim in December 2018, and their apprehension by law enforcement occurred swiftly, with the Secunda Regional Court delivering a sentence of 18 years of direct imprisonment for each perpetrator.
