An Ikeja magistrates’ court on Thursday remanded a 26-year-old man, Segun Ogunmakinwa, in the Kirikiri Correctional Centre, Lagos, for parading himself as a cultist and tormenting residents of Bariga area.

The Magistrate, Mrs M. C. Ayinde, who did not take the defendant’s plea, ordered his remand until September 2, pending advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
