Deposed Baale Of Shangisha, Wife Sent To Kirikiri For Faking Kidnap 
Magistrate T. Akanni of an Ogba magistrate’s court, Ikeja, yesterday, ordered the deposed Baale of Shangisha, Chief Mutiu Ogundare, to be remanded in Kirikiri Prison for allegedly faking his kidnap.

The Baale, alongside his wife, Abolanle, will remain in prison’s custody with one Mohammed Babatunde, pending the perfection of their bail conditions.

Ogundare and others were arraigned before the court on a three-count charge offence bordering on breach of public peace and fake kidnapping.

However, they all pleaded not guilty to the offences preferred against them by the Police.


The defendants’ counsel, Mr. Glory Odimayo, pleaded for their bail. Odimayo argued that the defendants are prominent members of the Shangisha community and will not jump bail.

Odimayo urged the court to grant them bail, while citing relevant constitutional provisions and authorities, stressing that the issue of bail is at the discretion of the court.

The prosecutor, Mr. Peter Okerinmodun, opposed the application, saying if granted bail, their presence in the community might cause a breakdown of law and order and that they will use their position to influence witnesses.

Ruling on the matter, Magistrate Akanni, citing Section 155 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law of Lagos State, 2011, agreed with the defence that bail is at the discretion of the court.

She latter granted the defendants N2 million bail with two sureties in like sum.

She further ordered that the sureties must include a traditional ruler, person with registered property in Lagos, be a tax payer and a Grade Level 17 officer in the state public service.

She, thereafter, adjourned the matter till August 23 for hearing.

Baddo Moves To Berger, Strike Lovers 
 Suspected members of the Badoo cult early Friday morning killed two lovers in their apartment in Ogun State.

A source told a Punch correspondent that the heads of the victims were smashed.

The incident happened at a storey building located on Hassan Abiodun Street, off Ojodu Berger, in Ifo Local Government Area of the state.

Many of the residents could not be consoled as policemen from Ojodu Abiodun Division took away the remains of the deceased for onward transfer to the General Hospital Sagamu.


Many of the residents wailed as the corpses were brought out of the room and wrapped in wrappers.

A resident told a Punch correspondent that the victims were to be officially married in December.

“The lady recently lost her father and the man she was to marry only came on a visit. She was a tall, beautiful lady and was also pregnant, ” the resident said.

It was gathered that their assailants tore the window net to gain entry and thereafter smashed the lovers’ heads.

Another resident said none of the tenants knew what happened until daybreak.

The resident said, “There is a police officer who lives next door to the deceased’s Boy’s Quarter. He did not hear anything. It is very sad and this development will create panic in the area.”

A Punch correspondent observed that the police station is a stone’s throw from where the murder took place even as residents said vigilantes patrol the street every night.

The police also arrested a man who tried to take a picture of their van and the vehicle the victims were put in.

As of 111 am the occupants of the building were still crying at the frontage.

The spokesperson for the police in Ogun, ASP Abimbola Oyeyemi, could not be reached for comments as his mobile indicated that it was switched off.


Abuja Taxi Driver Kills Ex-Ambassador, Steals Car 
 Detectives from Apo Divisional Police Station, Abuja have tracked down and arrested a taxi driver, Sikiru Lamidi, who allegedly murdered a former Nigerian ambassador to South Africa, Ngam Nwachukwu, on November 24, last year.

Lamidi, from Oyo town in Oyo State, was apprehended last week by the investigators at his home town where he was hiding after selling Nwachukwu’s Lexus SUV with Abuja registration number, YAB 938 MC.

The police, subsequently, recovered the vehicle which was sold with forged documents to one Femi Adeyemi. Lamidi was said to have offered to take the ex-envoy to his brother, a mechanic, who could work on the car and it was decided that Lamidi would come to the ex-ambassador’s house the following day.


The driver reportedly showed up at the ex-envoy’s residence at Villa Nova Estate, Apo the following day as agreed.

It was gathered that the deceased lived alone, and his security guard, who doubled as an electrician, was also not in the house during Lamidi’s visit.

Investigators stated that Nwachukwu offered the driver some food but he declined while sitting across from him at the dining table.

 “As the man was eating, the suspect pounced on him and wrestled him to the floor and then stabbed him in the neck with a pair of scissors. He stole the plasma television and home theatre in the apartment and went away with the deceased’s Lexus SUV which he sold for N1.480m to one Femi Adeyemi with forged documents,” an investigator said.

Lamidi told Punch correspondent on Thursday at the Apo Divisional Police Station that he did not know what came over him, adding that he just found himself stabbing the septuagenarian until he died.

 “After stabbing the man, I felt terrible and guilty but there was nothing I could do to reverse the situation,” he said.

 After killing Nwachukwu, the suspect explained that he sold the TV and home theatre audio system to a seller of fairly-used products at Area 10, Abuja for N38,000.

 He said that he kept the SUV in Sauka Village along Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Road for two weeks before driving it to Oyo town.

The taxi driver said he gave the vehicle to one Okuta who assisted him in forging the vehicle documents, adding that he compensated Okuta with N380,000 after selling the vehicle.

“Out of the remaining N1.1m, I bought a motorcycle for N180,000 and invested N500,000 in a cooperative society; I gave a car dealer N500,000 to assist me in getting a car, but he defrauded me and didn’t provide any vehicle,” Lamidi explained.
When asked if he had committed similar crimes before, the suspect denied, saying it was his first time.

 “I have not committed any crime before; I blame the devil for this. Sometimes, I entertain negative or diabolical thoughts, but I don’t smoke or drink,” he added.
