Man Hacked to Death Over 200 Naira
It is amazing what money can make people do.
Mayowa Olabiyi, 34, may be regretting his action. He should have taken the option of walking away rather than fighting over 200 Naira.
Now he is facing charges for a crime that stipulates death sentence for offenders.
Mayowa was brought before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly hacking a man to death over 200 Naira.
Olabiyi appeared before the Chief Magistrate, Mr O.O. Olatunji, on a two-count charge of conspiracy and murder.
His plea was not taken and was remanded at the Ikoyi Prison, Lagos for the next 30 days.
Olatunji directed that the case file should be sent to the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice.
The Police Prosecutor, Oladele Adebayo, alleged that the accused and two others now at large, had hacked Akeem Ajilogba, 23, with a machete while fighting over 200 Naira.
The case has been adjourned to October 11, for the DPP’s advice.
