A Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja has ordered Segun Fabunmi, the former Divisional Police Officer with Agege Police Station, Lagos, who was alleged to have shot dead 27-year old Ademola Abe, during the January 2012 fuel subsidy protest, to be remanded in Kirikiri maximum prison.
Justice Olabisi gave the order when Fabunmi who was arraigned before him pleaded not guilty to all the seven count charges preferred against him by the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions.
The accused allegedly murdered Ademola Abe, while he also attempted to murder three others by shooting at them with his AK 47 rifle. Those whom Fabunmi was alleged to have attempted to murder and inflicted grievous bodily harm on are, Alimi Abubakar, Egbujor Samuel and Chizorba Odoh.
Lead prosecutor, Mrs Olabisi Ogungbesan, alleged that Fabunmi committed the offences at about 9:30am on January 9, 2012, at Yaya-Abatan Street, Ogba-Agege, Lagos. He was said to have allegedly shot Abubakar and Samuel on their left legs and Odoh on his right finger.
Justice Akinlade subsequently ordered Fabunmi to be remanded in Kirikiri Maximum Prison, and adjourned till June 14 for the hearing of the application.
