Court remands four SARS operatives for ‘murder’

A Chief Magistrates’ Court in Ebute Meta, Lagos, on Thursday ordered that four men of the Special Armed Response Squad (SARS) who allegedly killed two unsuspected robbers in Iba Axis, be remanded in prison, pending legal advice.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Alex Komolafe, who did not take the pleas of Omomuyiwa Fabiyi, 42; Solomon Olaniyi, 41; Sunday Solomon, 41; and Mukaila Aliyu, 35; ordered that they be remanded on Ikoyi Prison pending legal advice from the State Director of Public Prosecutions.

He has adjourned the matter until Sept. 23.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp. Cousin Adams, alleged that the defendants committed the offence on Aug. 19, at noon, at Ipaye bus stop, Iba, a Lagos suburb.

He alleged that the defendants killed two men suspected to be armed robbers.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 223 and 233 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
