A 40-year-old man, Murisiku Adejuwon, on Thursday appeared before an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court on Lagos island for allegedly giving false information to the police to implicate five men over  murder charge.

The accused, who resides in Ikorodu area of Lagos State, is facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and giving false information to the police.

The Prosecutor, ASP. Henry Obiazi, told the court that the accused with others still at large committed ‎the offence sometime in October 2016 in Lagos.

He said Adejuwon  accused the five men — Suleman Onabanjo, Ibrahim Adesanya (alias Elebiju), Suleman Adesina, Lekan Obisanya and Uthman of murdering a man, Michael Ekpo, knowing full well that they were innocent.

The offences contravened Sections 95 (1) and (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).

The accused, however, denied the charge and his lawyer, Mr Femi ‎Adefalujo, urged the court to grant him bail on liberal terms.

The prosecutor objected to the bail application on the grounds that the accused had earlier jumped administrative bail and was likely do it again.

In her ruling, the Magistrate, Mrs K. S. Abdulsalam, granted the accused bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

She said one of the sureties must be a blood relation of the accused and must provide evidence of gainful employment.

In addition, the other surety must be a property owner within the court’s jurisdiction and produce evidence of tax payment from 2014 to 2016.

The case was adjourned until May 9 for mention.
