An Ekiti State Chief Magistrate Court, sitting in Ado Ekiti has granted an order to remand Olajiga Sikemi (31), Olajiga Banji (63) and Olajiga Victoria (57) in the custody of the Nigeria Correctional Service, Ado Ekiti.

The Chief Magistrate, Michael Faola, ordered the defendants to be remanded pending issuance of legal advice from the office of Director of Public Prosecutions.

The police prosecutor, Inspector Bamikole Olasunkanmi, said the defendants on the 6th of December 2021, were reasonably suspected to have committed an offence of murder and negligence, leading to the death of 7-year-old Demilade Fadare in Adehun Area of Ado Ekiti.

The magistrate has adjourned the case to January 10, 2022, for mention.
