HEARTLESS: I Killed Timilehin, Teenager Confesses
Words coming out of this 19-year-old would send cold chills down your spine if you were at the Osogbo High Court on Tuesday.
Heartless, wicked, evil are just few of the words used by the shocked court audience to describe what they heard.
It was the confession of Abdulrofiu Sakariyau who was accused of killing Timileyin Shonibare, a 400-level student of the Osun State University before his death.
Sakariyau admitted guilt during arraignment before Justice Kudirat Akano.
He was arraigned along with Yusuf Kareem,18; Ayuba Ibrahim, 20; Isiaq Yusuf, 40; and Abdulkareen Adeoti, 50 but the others pleaded not guilty.
Due to the gravity of the alleged offence, Justice Akano consequently remanded them in the Ilesha Prison custody until December 15 when the case would be mentioned again.
The prosecution counsel, Dr Bashir Ajibola, had submitted that the accused murdered the student on June 26 at Oke-Baale area of Osogbo.
Ajibola said that the accused cut Sonibare’s head, hand and some other parts of his body killing him, in contravention of Sections 516, 319 and 242 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2002.
Counsel to the accused, Mr Alayo Abayomi and Mr Kazeem Badmus, prayed the court to grant bail to their clients, who pleaded not guilty.
Akano overruled them and ordered that all the five accused persons be remanded until December 15.
