An Abakaliki Magistrate’s Court, Ebonyi State, yesterday, remanded one Ogobuchi Ogonna, 25, for drowning his step-brother, Wisdom Amagu, aged three.

Ogobuchi allegedly tied a stone to
his stepbrother’s waist and threw
him into a stream. The incident occurred at Ndiebor Nchoko, Igbeagu community in Izzi
Local Government Area of the state. Ogonna was arraigned on a count
charge of unlawful cause of death. The charge read:

“That you Ogobuchi Amegu, on September 9 at Ndiebor Nchoko, Igbeagu Izzi in the Abakaliki Magisterial district, did unlawfully cause the death of one Wisdom Amagu and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 319(1) of the Criminal Code, Cap 33: Vol. 1. Laws of Ebonyi State of Nigeria, 2009.”

After the charge was read to him,
trial magistrate, Nnachi Olughu,
ordered the suspect remanded in
prison custody till November 18 and the case file transferred to the
Department of Public Prosecution, DPP, for advice as the court has no
jurisdiction to entertain the matter.

He held that since “the accused
person has no counsel to represent
him to enable him take his pleas,
this court, hereby, orders that he be
remanded in prison custody till
November 18.”
