An Ebutte Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court has remanded a bus conductor named Dolapo Olajire in prison for stabbing a man to death after robbing him.

The court magistrate, O.A. Salawu, gave the order on Wednesday, December 28, 2016.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Salawu reportedly refused to take the plea of the accused following the  two-count charge of robbery and murder brought against him.

The decision to remand Olajire in prison was based on the fact that he had no legal representation and none of his relations were present during the court ruling.

He reportedly committed the offences on December 1, 2016, at the residence of Ugochukwu Nwosu, who was the victim.
