A 30-year-old man, Dickson Uwadinusu, has been remanded in prison custody by an Egor Magistrates’ Court sitting in Benin, Edo State, for allegedly threatening to kill his parents.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the order was handed down on the suspect by the Magistrate, Mrs E.E. Edokpayi, who frowned at the accused person’s act and vowed not to grant him bail.

The Magistrate reasoned that if he was granted bail, he would go back home and continue the same act or even kill his parents.

The prosecutor in the case, Violet Soyemi had earlier told the court that the accused committed the offence on November 4, 2016, at Agbanbe Street, Evbotubo Quarters, Benin.

The accused who pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge leveled against him, was however happy that he was going to prison as he was heard telling his girlfriend who accompanied him to the court:

“I am happy going to the prison and will see you on the next adjourned date.”
