By Mumini Abdulkareem
An Ilorin Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday ordered the remand of Usman Abdulkareem in a correctional centre for allegedly conspiring with an herbalist friend to abduct his wife.
The police slammed Abdulkareem, the herbalist, Babatunde Mohammed and a friend, Fatai Adisa with a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and abduction to commit culpable homicide which is in contrary to sections 97 and 274 of Penal Code Law.
Magistrate Afusat Alege ordered that the defendants be remanded in Oke-Kura Correctional Centre, Ilorin and adjourned the case to February 24th, 2021 for further mention.
The prosecution counsel, Sgt. Abubakar Issa, told the court that investigation conducted revealed that Abdulkareem was the one who called Mumeenat, his wife, on mobile phone and asked her to meet him in the second defendant’s house at 5 p.m.
He said that investigation revealed that Mohammed was a herbalist who claims to make money for people using human parts and prayed for an adjournment to enable the police complete its investigation.
The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
