A couple, Tayo Olaobaju, 31 and Arike Olaobaju, 23, who allegedly murdered a 60-year-old man, Mr Moses Eze, were on Monday sent to correctional custodies by an Ile-Ife Magistrates’ Court.

The Magistrate, Mr Olukunle Owolawi, who did not take pleas of the defendants, ordered the prosecutor to duplicate the case file and send it to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice.

Owolawi ordered that the husband, Tayo, be remanded in Ile-Ife Correctional Custody, while his wife was sent to Ilesa Correctional Custody.

He adjourned the case until Oct. 4 for mention.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, ASP. Joseph Adebayo, told the court that the defendants committed the offences on Aug. 21 at about 7:20a.m at Igboya Area of Ile-Ife.

Adebayo said that the defendants assaulted Eze by beating him, which led to his death.

He said the offences contravened Sections 316, 319(1) and 324 of the Criminal Law of Osun, 2002.
