Court Remands 14-Year-Old Boy For Killing Neighbour Over Girlfriend

An Ondo State Magistrate Court sitting in Akure has ordered the remand of a 14-year-old boy, Marvelous Asefon, for allegedly killing his 17-year-old neighbor, Sunday Ogele.

The defendant was arrested by Police on April 20, 2023, for allegedly stabbing the deceased to death with a pair of scissors during a scuffle over his girlfriend in Oka Akoko, the headquarters of Akoko South-West Local Government Area.

He was arraigned on one count of murder.

The charge read, “That you, Marvelous Asefon, ‘m’ on April 20 Sunday, 2023, at 8:pm at Kanmu, Oka-Akoko in the Ondo State Magisterial District, did kill one Sunday Ogele ‘m’ 17 years old by stabbing him with scissors in his rib, which led to his death.”

The offense contravenes Section 319(1) and 316 of the Criminal Code, Cap 37, Vol. 2, Laws of Ondo State, 2016.

His plea was not taken.

The Police Prosecutor, Martins Olowofeso, urged the Court to remand the defendant at the Correctional Centre pending the issuance of advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The presiding Magistrate, Folashade Aduroja, therefore ordered the remand of the defendant and adjourned the case till June 11 for a ruling.
