The police charged Kola with assault and homicide.

Magistrate Kikelomo Adebayo did not take Kola’s plea on grounds that his court lacked the jurisdiction to hear the case.

She therefore ordered that he should be remanded in Ile-Ife corrections centre, pending legal advice from the office of Director of Public Prosecutions.

The magistrate adjourned the matter until June 21, for mention.
