A Chief Magistrates’ Court in Ebute Meta, Lagos State on Friday ordered that an officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Oluwafemi Emmanuel, 42, who allegedly stabbed a police inspector to death, be remanded in a correctional facility.

Emmanuel is charged with homicide.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs F.M Kayode-Alamu, did not take the plea of Emmanuel.

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