A Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Ebute-Metta, Lagos, has ruled that Olalekan Ogunyemi, the accused Police Inspector who allegedly killed football fan Kolade Johnson, should remain in prison till June 10.
The decision means that Ogunyemi, who has already spent 30 days in prison since he was first remanded on April 6, would spend an additional 35 days in Ikoyi Prison
Magistrate A. O. Salawu extended the remand order because the advice on the case which was expected this morning, Monday 6th May from the Office of the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), is not ready.
Oguyemi, a 45-year-old resident of 17, Alhaji Ede Street, Igando, is facing trial on a one-count charge of murder.
According to Kehinde Olatunde, the Prosecuting Inspector, Ogunyemi committed the offence on March 31, at about 5:10pm, at Onipetesi Estate, Idi-Mangoro, Lagos.
Olatunde alleged that Ogunyemi, who served in the Anti Cultism Unit of Lagos State Police Command, used his Ak47 rifle to gun down Johnson, 36, contravening the provisions of Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
