...Claims he was having illicit affair with his wife

AN herdsman, Iliasu Abubakar, has been remanded in Oke-Kura Correctional Centre, Ilorin, after confessing to have murdered his brother, Isah Abubakar, in Gwanara, Baruten Local Government area of Kwara State.

The defendant (Iliasu), reportedly carried out the act, claiming the deceased, Isah Abubakar, was having illicit affair with his wife.

He was dragged before Magistrate Jumoke Bamigboye for culpable homicide contrary to Sections 221 of penal code law.

The First Information Report (FIR) said that one Abubakar Umaru of Budo-Aiki, Fulani camp, via Gwanara, reported the matter at the community police post before it was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Ilorin, for discreet investigation.

According to the FIR, Umaru, who is the father of the two, had gone to the camp of his sons, Isah and Illiasu Abubakar, but found no one around except for the cattle.

When he searched premises of the camp, the FIR revealed that Umaru found corpse of his son, Isah.

Isah's neck was reportedly laced with machete laceration while his brother was nowhere to be found.

Police deny robbery attack in Discreet investigation into the matter, however, revealed that Iliasu killed his brother and fled to Oyo State.

After he was arrested, the defendant confessed to the police to have macheted his brother on his neck because he was having illicit affair with his wife.

The police report noted that the deceased had once claimed before the defendant that he is the father of the three-year-old baby his wife is nursing.

The defendant, after confessing to the crime, said he had warned the deceased severally to desist from the act but failed to listen, and as such, attacked him.

The prosecutor, Sanni Abdullah, prayed the court to remand the defendant in prison custody saying the offences against him is not bailable.

He submitted further that the offences cannot be tried at the magistracy hence the need to remand the Iliasu till the matter is transferred to the appropriate court for hearing.

The prosecutor added that the defendant may commit similar offence if admitted to bail, saying he should rather be kept in the correctional centre pending the determination of the case.

Magistrate Bamigboye, ceded to the prayers of the prosecutor and ordered the remand of the defendant while the matter was adjourned to 26th November, 2019.
