A driver, Idowu Adekanye, has allegedly murdered his boss, Omololu Olowosoyo, in Irele LGA of Ondo State.
The suspect, who was arraigned before the court on a four-count charge bothering on conspiracy, kidnapping and murder, was said to have first kidnapped Mr Olowosoyo before strangling him to death.
The prosecutor, Insp Taiwo Oniyere, told the court that the defendant on January 14, 2023, along Ore- Ode Irele Road in Odigbo LGA conspired with others (at large) to kidnap his boss when he accompanied him on a business trip to Osogbo, Osun State, and later strangled and killed him.
The prosecutor prayed the court to remand the defendant pending advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).

However, the defense counsel, D. S. Akinbo, opposed the application, saying the case was not ripe for hearing, noting that his client was served on the day of arraignment.
The Magistrate, R. O. Yakubu, adjourned the case to Friday.
