OPC member faces murder charge

A member of Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Sikiru Raimi, employed by Ijegun Community Zone, Lagos, as a security man, has been arraigned for murder before a Lagos State High Court for the alleged killing of one Nwoke Kalu.

The accused person, according to the charge, was said to have, on or about September 18, 2009 at about 05:03am, while on security patrol at 3, Celestial Crescent Water Side, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos State in the Lagos Judicial Division, murdered one Nwoke Kalu, contrary to Section 316 (2) of the Criminal Code Law Cap C17, Vol. 2 Laws of Lagos State 2003.

A mild drama, however, played out in court after the accused pleaded not guilty in English Language, only for his counsel to inform the court that Raimi does not understand English and would be answering questions in Yoruba language.

“Probably, he (the accused) saw other accused persons take their plea in English language and decided to take his own in the same language, but he only understands Yoruba language, maybe with a little pidgin English,” the defence counsel explained.

Why did he kill Kalu?

Nna men this why, see below

It was gathered that the accused and three of his colleagues, while on security patrol on the said day, met a group of people sitting in front of a house in street in the estate. The people told the security men that because there was not public light, they decided to fresh air outside, while they were asked to go inside. This generated into argument and the accused was allegedly enraged while holding a double barrel gun, which exploded, killing the deceased.
