An Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court in Ibadan, on Thursday, ordered that a task force official, Afeez Garba (39) be remanded in a correctional facility for allegedly killing a motorcyclist.

The police charged Garba with murder.

The Magistrate, Mrs Oluwabusayo Osho, did not take the plea of Garba over jurisdiction. She directed the police to return the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for legal advice. Osho thereafter adjourned the case until June 20 for mention.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp Olalekan Adegbite, told the court that Garba committed the offence on April 10 around Gate Bus stop, Ibadan.

Adegbite alleged that Garba caused the death of a motorcyclist, Saburi Subaru (44) by hitting him on the head with his fist. (NAN)
