It all started as a normal altercation between Idris Habib and Kehinde Bakare on August 22, at Abijo of Ibeju Lekki in Lagos State.

Idris, 38 lost his temper and used a plank to hit Kehinde, 43, on the head, making him slip into unconsciousness, and the later eventually died in the hospital.

And that was the beginning of his troubles as he has now appeared before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Lagos, facing a charge of murder.

On Friday, the Chief Magistrate, Mr O.O. Olatunji, who did not take the plea of the accused because his court lacked jurisdiction to hear the case, ordered Habib’s remand at the Ikoyi Prison.

Olatunji directed that the case file be duplicated and forwarded to the office of the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice and thereafter adjourned the case until Nov. 8 for mention.

Earlier, Cyril Ejiofor, a Police counsel, reminded the court that the offence contravened Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 which prescribes a death sentence for offenders.

How Idris will escape the death sentence is what no one can explain.
