David Uche, who allegedly killed an Ogun State retired magistrate, Mrs Oluwafunmilayo Timeyin, has been arraigned before an Abeokuta magistrate court on a one count charge of murder, an offence contrary to section 316 and punishable under section 319 of the criminal code laws of Ogun State of Nigeria 2006.
Arraigned before Magistrate Anthony Araba of the magistrate court one in Isabo, Abeokuta, the Ogun State Capital, David Uche was in chains after being brought from the Oba prison facility in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of the state.
David Uche, a former house help to the late retired magistrate, murdered his former boss last week on March 28 and was later arrested by members of the vigilante group attached to Laderin workers estate in Abeokuta.
He has however been remanded in prison custody pending advise from the director of public prosecution.
The house help who was arrested last week, allegedly scaled the fence of the late Timeyin’s house, deactivated the security system inside the building, and laid siege within the premises before hacking the retired magistrate to death.
David was reportedly employed two months ago and sent packing two weeks ago for allegedly stealing his boss’ valuables including phones and jewellery which led to his arrest and subsequent release on the boss’ order.
