However, the Court did not take his plea after the prosecutor, Inspector Lucky Ihiehie, asked the Court to refer the matter to the DPP for advice.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O. A. Layinka, ordered his remand in custody pending the outcome of the DPP’s advice and directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to the DPP.
The matter was adjourned till 29th November, 2021, for the report of the DPP to be ready while the defendant will remain in custody pending the outcome of the DPP’s advice in order to determine if the matter will be transferred to the High Court or not over jurisdiction.
