A security man, Oluwatuyi Alake, 45, on Tuesday appeared before an Ado-Ekiti Magistrates’ Court for allegedly killing and dumping the body of his concubine who died after intense sex in the bush.
The presiding magistrate, Omolola Akosile, however ordered that the accused be remanded in the prison custody pending the further hearing in the case on Dec.15.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Sgt. Monica Ikebuilo, had told the court that the defendant committed the crime on Oct. 30 at Ojuoro Street, Stadium Road, in Ijero-Ekiti, Ekiti.
She alleged that the accused on the said date, had intense sexual intercourse with the deceased which left her unconscious and led to her death.
She also alleged that “the defendant dumped the body of the deceased in the bush to cover up his deed.”
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Section 319 of the Criminal Code, Cap C 16, Laws of Ekiti State, 2012.
Ikebuilo told the court that she had duplicated the case file and sent it to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPPs) for legal advice.
The plea of the accused was not taken as his counsel, Mr Busuyi Ayorinde, sought a short adjournment date pending the outcome of the legal advice from the DPPs.
