A Yaba Chief Magistrates Court has remanded a dismissed Police Sergeant, Samuel Philips, in prison custody for allegedly killing Monsurat Ojuade.

The ruling was issued hours after the Lagos police command sacked Phillips after an orderly room trial.

Chief Magistrate Adeola Adedayo said that the 30-year-old remain behind bars pending legal advice from the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The defendant was arraigned on a charge of murder. His plea was not taken.

The prosecutor, Insp Augustine Nwabuisi, said hd defendant committed the offence on September 10, about 11:30 p.m. at No. 5, Mogaji St., Ijeshatedo area of Lagos.

Philips is accused of firing bullet into the residence of the 18-year-old Monsurat while on an operation.

The bullet hit the admission seeker’s thighs leading to her death within a short period.

The offence contravenes Section 223 of the criminal law of Lagos State 2015 which stipulates a death sentence.

The case was adjourned until October 25 for receipt of legal advice.
