Magistrate O. A. Olagbende, who did not take the plea of the defendant, ordered that he be remanded in Ikoyi Prisons, pending advice from the office of the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions, DPP.

She also ordered the Police to duplicate and forward the case file to DPP, and adjourned the case until September 24, pending DPP’s advice.

Earlier, the prosecution counsel, ASP Clara Olagbayi, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on July 1, about 11p.m., at his 55, Corporation Estate, Amuwo Odofin residence.

She alleged that the defendant took some drugs on that day to enhance his performance and went to a nearby hotel to pick up the deceased, simply identified as Charity.

Olagbayi alleged that when they got home, the deceased insisted that the defendant pay her first, before “business.”

She said the defendant picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed Charity multiple times during the argument over payment.

The offence, she said, contravened the provisions of Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015, which prescribes a death sentence for offenders.
