  1. An 18-year-old man, Agugu Adau, who allegedly killed his mother for refusing to hand over a ‘disappearing’ charm he claimed was his inheritance, appeared before a Plateau State High Court on Tuesday. Adau, a resident of Kisaghyip village in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau, was charged with culpable homicide. The police prosecutor, Mr U.F Okeke, told the court that the accused allegedly committed the offence on Dec. 29, 2016, saying that it contravened section 221 of the Penal Code and was punishable with death upon conviction. The accused, in his plea, pleaded guilty to the crime and tried to explain how he killed his mother. Justice Nafisa Musa, after listening to his plea, however, entered a no-guilty plea for the accused. “In a capital offence, the burden of proof lies squarely on the prosecution. The position of criminal jurisprudence requires the prosecution to assemble all its witnesses to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the accused person committed the crime,” the judge said. The judge also noted that the accused person had no counsel, and advised him to get one. She adjourned the matter to May 9, for hearing.

  4. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos Zonal Office, on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, re-arraigned two officials of the Independent National Elect0ral Commission (INEC), Christian Nwosu and Tijani Inda Bashir on an amended nine-count charge bordering on money laundering to the tune of N264,880.000 (Two Hundred and Sixty-four Million, Eight Hundred and Eighty Thousand Naira). The prosecution counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, told the court that the Commission amended the charge in line with the Administration of the Criminal Justice Act(ACJA) 2015, which gives room for such amendment at any time. He, therefore, prayed the court for the charge to be read to the defendants so as to allow them to take their pleas. However, counsels to the defendants kicked on the grounds that Oyedepo had earlier called two prosecution witnesses in the matter, conducted his trial within the trial and closed his case against the defendants. The defense counsel also stated that they had filed a no-case submission on February 16, 2018. They further urged the court to direct Oyedepo to respond to the no-case submission instead of amending the charge. “Amending the charge amounts to injustice; it is prejudicial to the defendants and it is a waste of time of the court,” they said. They, therefore, urged the court to reject the prosecution’s application. In his response, Oyedepo told the court “that amendment of a charge is allowed in law; it can be done anytime before judgment.” Justice Idris, in his short ruling, ordered the defendants to take their pleas on the grounds that amendment of a charge could be done anytime. Count one of the charge reads: “That you, Mrs. Diezani Allison Madueke (still at large) Christian Nwosu, Yisa Olanrewaju Adedoyin (now convicted) and Tijani Inda Bashir, on or about the 27th day of March, 2015, in Nigeria within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court , conspired amongst yourselves to directly take possession of the N264,880.000(Two Hundred and Sixty- four Million, Eighty Hundred and Eighty Thousand Naira), which sum you reasonably ought to have known forms part of the proceeds of an unlawful act to with: gratification and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 18(a) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) (Amendment) Act, 2012 and punishable under Section 15(3) of the same Act. “ The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge preferred against them. In view of their pleas, the defense counsel urged the court to allow their clients to enjoy the bail earlier granted them by the court. The prosecution did not oppose the prayers of the defense. Consequently, Justice Idris ordered the defense counsels to file their no-case submission within 10 days, while the prosecution is to reply within seven days. Nwosu allegedly received the sum of N264m from a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison -Madueke, to compromise the 2015 presidential election. Nwosu had earlier pleaded guilty to the charge and opted for a plea bargain. The EFCC had told the court that it had already recovered N5m cash and a landed property worth N25m from him. But Nwosu had later abandoned the plea bargain after Justice Idris rejected the agreement between him and the EFCC. The matter was adjourned to March 29, 2018, for hearing.
