A 24-year-old man, Christian Musendiku, who allegedly killed his 80-year-old grandmother, was on Monday arraigned in an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos.
The prosecutor, Inspector Julius Babatope explained to the court that the accused committed the offence on April 2, 1 am, at No. 3, Erelu Street, Ato-Awori, Ijanikin, Lagos.
He said that the accused hacked his grandmother, Maria Ogabi, to death with a cutlass.
According to the prosecutor, the offence violated Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The accused, however, pleaded for mercy even as he refused to plead guilty.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs O.A. Adegite, consequently ordered that the defendant be remanded at Ikoyi Prisons pending legal advice from the State Director of Public Prosecutions.
The case was then adjourned until May 16.
