An Ilorin Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday remanded in prison two security guards — Ibrahim Salisu and Shuaibu Musa —  for allegedly killing a man, Ishiaku Ibrahim, on the farm.

The Magistrate, Mr Babatunde Immam, who gave the order, said the duo should remain in Okekura Prison, Ilorin, pending conclusion of investigations.

The accused — Salisu, 21, and Shuaibu Musa, 23 — are being tried for a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and murder.

Police Prosecutor Adewumi Johnson told the court that the accused, who reside at Gbanaguru village, Okuta in Baruteen Local Government Area of Kwara, were arrested on Feb. 27 at Okuta, after committing the offences.

According to him,  the accused engaged the deceased in a fight on the farm and killed him.

The accused persons killed Ibrahim, who allegedly came with an accomplice, now at large, to steal some tubers of yam at a farm in Gbanaguru, Johnson said.

The offences contravened Sections 97 and 222 of the Penal Code.

He urged the court to remand the accused in prison until investigations were completed.

The case was adjourned until April 19 for mention.
