A 23-year-old man, Kingsley Bassey, has been remanded at the Kirikiri Custodial Centre for the alleged murder of his 6-year-old brother while under the influence of drugs.

The suspect was arrested by the police at Meiran Division, and later transferred to the SCID, Yaba.

He was brought before the Yaba Magistrates’ Court presided over by Magistrate Patrick Nwaka on one count of murder on Monday.

The prosecutor, Thomas Nurudeen, told the court that the defendant committed the crime on May 29, 2023, around 8.30am at No. 3, Poultry Road, Meiran, Lagos State.

According to Nurudeen, the offence is contrary to Section 222 and punishable under Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.
