Court discharges 9 men accused of murdering Apapa PDP chairman

An Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court
on Friday discharged nine men charged with the murder of the
Apapa local government PDP chairman, Adeniyi Aborisade.

Delivering a ruling, Chief Magistrate Mr Alex Komolafe, dismissed the
murder charges against Rotimi Kujore, 44; Fatai Adele, 62; Ismaila Abiola,
50; Amos Fawole, 65; Victoria Falowo, 42.

Others include Mukaila Odukoya, 54; Isaac Oropo, 55; Muhammed Babangida, 37;
and Ugochukwu Nwoke, 50.

The accused were arraigned alongside Moshood Salvador, chairman of the
Lagos State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who has
since been discharged of the crime levelled against him.

Chief Magistrate Komolafe, in the ruling, held that in view of the advice
from the office of the Directorate of Public Prosecution, the court
exonerated the accused persons.

Komolafe also ordered that the nine accused be released from Ikoyi Prison.

The magistrate, however, refused to discharge Kehinde Fasasi, 61, the
tenth accused but granted him bail in the sum N400,000.

The offences contravened Sections 223 and 233 of the Criminal Law of
Lagos State, 2015.
