Thirteen suspects were remanded in a correctional centre by a Magistrate Court in Ilorin on Wednesday in connection with the murder of the Olukoro of Koro in the Ekiti local government area of Kwara state, Oba Segun Aremu-Cole (rtd).

The suspects were arraigned for alleged criminal conspiracy, culpable homicide, kidnapping, and giving false information.

They are Godwin Jacob, Olowofela Oyebanji, Adefalolu Ayodele, Tewasie Francis, Babatunde Samuel, Godwin Joseph, Issa Number, Miracle Solomon, Abraham Kehinde, Muhammed Bello, Muhammed Muhammed, Ahmadu Umaru, and Muhammed Dankai of different addresses in Ekiti State

According to the Police First Information Report (FIR), one Aremu Simon Adeyemi reported the case to the Eruku Police Division.

“The suspects pointed a gun at him, ordering him to follow them when he challenged them after noticing their movement around his grandson,” the FIR quoted Adeyemi as saying.

“He said his grandson escaped through the backdoor while the suspects proceeded to kill the monarch, kidnap his wife, and one Mercy.”
The prosecutor, Abdullah Sanni, informed the court of the motion ex parte attached to the police report, urging the court to order their remand.

 Magistrate Monisola Kamson, in her ruling, ordered the remand of the suspects at the federal correctional centre and adjourned the matter to March 5, 2024.
