A 29-year-old, Precious Ibe has a pending legal advice remand, ordered by Ebute-Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on a murder case at the Ikoyi Correctional Centre on Friday.
Precious was brought to court for allegedly stabbing a man, Sunday Emmanuel, to death on Sept. 1, at a hotel in FESTAC Town, Lagos.
Presiding magistrate, Mr W.A. Salami ordered the remand of the defendant at the correctional centre pending legal advice from the Department of Public Prosecution.
The plea of the defendant was not taken.
Prosecuting Sgt. Temitope Adegbite had earlier told the court that Precious stabbed Emmanuel with a knife in the stomach, an action which led to his death.
The offence contravened the criminal code of Lagos State, which prescribes death sentence for convicts of murder.
