Alleged Cultist Who Killed Four People Apprehended

An Ebute-Meta Magistrates’ Court in Lagos Thursday remanded in Ikoyi Prison a suspected cultist, Jamiu Atolagbe, alias Anto, who allegedly killed four men.

Chief Magistrate Alex Komolafe remanded the defendant following an application by the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (ForceCIID) Alagbon-Ikoyi, Lagos.

He ordered that the case file be sent to the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice and adjourned till June 5.
Atolagbe, 24, of 24, Sango Street, Ajah, was put in the dock on a temporary four-count charge of conspiracy, murder, belonging to and managing an unlawful society.

Prosecuting Inspector Cousin Adams alleged that Atolagbe committed the offences on April 15, at about 4:45am at General Paints Area, Ajah.

He said the defendant, an alleged member of “Aiye Confraternity,” killed four unidentified persons.

According to the prosecutor, the offences contravened Sections 41, 42, 223 and 233 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Atolagbe’s plea was not taken, because magistrates’ court has no jurisdiction to try a murder charge.
