They were arrested by the police with the help of one Fatima, one of the children of the deceased,” Police prosecutor, Mr. Paul Inedu, told an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrate’s Court in Lagos on Thursday during the trial of two the brothers who killed their 65 years old father.
Consequently, the accused persons – Rasaq Abiona and Yusuf Abiona of ages 34 and 27 – who are standing trial on two counts of conspiracy and murder, were remanded in Ikoyi Prisons by the Magistrate, Mr. F.M. Kayode, pending advice from the state DPP.
