Tribunal rejects PDP's request
 

A 45-year-old man, Sikiru Adebayo, arraigned in an Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court, on Thursday, for allegedly beating his son to death.

According to NAN, Sgt. Duro Adekunle, the prosecutor, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on July 31, at Abidogun Zone 7 area of Osogbo.

Adekunle said that the defendant beat his son, Uthman Adebayo to death after the son stole a belt belonging to a neighbour. He said the offence contravened Section 319(1) of the Criminal Code, Cap 34 Vol. 11 Laws of Osun, 2003.

Adebayo is facing a one-count charge of murder.

Defence counsel, Mudashiru Balogun, prayed the court to grant his client bail on the most liberal terms.

Balogun said that the case file released from the office of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions indicted a manslaughter charge against his client.

The plea of the defendant was not taken.

The Magistrate, Mrs. Fatimoh Sodamade, ordered remand of the defendant in police custody and amendment of the charge to reflect manslaughter as indicated by the DPP.

The case was adjourned until Aug. 11 for hearing.
