An Igbosere Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Friday remanded brothers, Nurudeen Dada, 38, and Wasiu Dada, 41, who allegedly stabbed their friend to death.
The Magistrate, Mrs A. Tobi, ordered that the brothers should be kept in the Ikoyi Prisons pending the advice of the state’s Director of Public Prosecutions.
The court, consequently, could not take the plea of the brothers, who reside at Isheri-Oke, Ijegun, Lagos.
The prosecutor, DSP Raymond Akhaine, told the court that the accused conspired to kill Mr Quadri Busari, 32, on Aug. 3, at Isheri-Oke.
He submitted that the brothers stabbed Busari during a fight with him.
“The accused unlawfully killed Busari by hitting him on the head with a stick before stabbing him with a knife.”
Akhaine submitted that the offences contravened Sections 221 and 231 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
The court adjourned the case to Sept. 23 for mention.
