The police officer responsible for the death of Kolade Johnson, Inspector Olalekan Ogunyemi, who has already spent 30 days in Ikoyi Prison custody following his remand by the court on April 6, will now stay in custody for 35 more days.
The police officer Ogunyemi, who resides at No. 17, Alhaji Ede Street, Igando, was charged before the court on April 6, on a one-count charge of murder.
Ogunyemi, has been ordered by a Magistrate Court at the Ebute-Meta area of Lagos, to have his remand extended till June 10.The remand order was extended by Magistrate A.O. Salawu because the advice on the case which was expected this morning from the Office of the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), was not ready and the suspect was also not in court.
The prosecutor, Kehinde Olatunde had told the court that the defendant committed the offence on March 31, at about 5:10pm, at Onipetesi Estate, Idi-Mangoro, Lagos.
According to Olatunde, Ogunyemi, who was in the Anti-Cultism Unit of Lagos State Police Command, shot 36-year-old Johnson, to death, with his Ak47 rifle.
The police prosecutor alerted the court that the offences contravened Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
