Six suspected cultists have been arraigned before an Ebute Meta magistrate court, Lagos, over alleged robbery and killing of an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP).
The defendants are: Akinwale Bamido, 25; Olanrewaju Bamido, 22; John Matter, 21; Moses Adeniyi, 23; Shola Olatoye, 25 and Okechukwu Augustine, 18.
The prosecutor, Insp. Maria Dauda, said the defendants robbed 45-year-old ASP Abiodun Akinde of his phones, car keys, N20,000 and shot him dead.
While their pleas were not taken, the magistrate, Mrs. Monisola Ayinde, ordered that they be kept in the Ikoyi Prison pending advice of the state director of public prosecution.
She adjourned the case to May 20, 2019, for mention. (NAN)
