In a correctional facility, two men; Ayuba Balogun and Evans Adamson, have been remanded by the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court sitting in Igbosere, for the alleged murder of a member of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Olayinka Mamora, and possession of firearms.
Mamora, who was an assistant to the state Chairman of the NURTW, Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, was murdered on September 30, 2015, around 7.30pm in Oshodi, Lagos State.
The demised victim had gone to visit his father on Mosaku Street in the Mafoloku area of Oshodi and decided to get a haircut at a barbershop when the hoodlums stormed the place and shot him.
The prosecutor, Morufu Animashaun, stated that that the defendants were brought on a remand warrant application dated October 28, 2019.
According to Animashaun, three pump action guns and ten live cartridges were recovered from the defendants’ hideout in Oshodi and Mowe, Ogun State.
He solicited that the court should remand the duo in a correctional centre pending legal advice by the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.
