An Osun Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ile-Ife, on Friday remanded a 25-year-old man, Adebisi Kola, for allegedly beating a woman to death.

The police charged Kola with assault and homicide.

Magistrate Kikelomo Adebayo did not take Kola’s plea on grounds that his court lacked the jurisdiction to hear the case.

She therefore ordered that he should be remanded in Ile-Ife corrections centre, pending legal advice from the office of Director of Public Prosecutions.

The magistrate adjourned the matter until June 21, for mention.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp Sunday Osanyintuyi told the court that Kola committed the offence on April 15, 2024 around 4 pm at Ita-Apata Area, Ile-Ife.

Osanyintuyi said that Kola beat Omisakin Grace to death.

The offence, he said, is punishable under section 319 of the Criminal Code, Cap 34, Vol 11, Laws of Osun, 2002.

Kola was represented in court by his counsel, Mr Micheal Babatunde.
