An Iyaganku magistrates’ court in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Thursday, ordered the remand of a 35-year-old man, Dickson Peter, for allegedly setting his landlord’s house on fire.

The Magistrate, Mr M Mudashiru, who did not take the defendant’s plea due to want in jurisdiction, ordered that he should be remanded pending advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).

Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Insp Femi Oluwadare, told the court that the defendant on April 18, at about 12am unlawfully set fire to the house of his landlord, Cepas Okeme, and destroyed property worth N6.5m.

Oluwadare said that the fire spread to the next house, property of one Ms Bose Ali and destroyed property worth N3.5m. (NAN)
