Lagos PDP Chairman, Salvador and 10 Others, In Prison For Murder

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, Moshood Salvador, and ten others have been ordered by the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court sitting in Yaba, to be remanded in the prison over alleged murder of the party chairman in the Apapa Local Government Area of the state, Adeniyi Aborishade.

Mr Oyetade Komolafe, the chief magistrate, gave the order, shortly after they were arraigned by the police on two charges of conspiracy and unlawful killing.

The magistrate was told by the Police that Aborishade was murdered last Saturday, July 21, during the PDP’s “visitation meeting” that held at Igbosuku Village, Eti-Osa Local Government Area.

The prosecution said Salvador and the others “acted contrary to the law” and were liable to be punished under sections 233 and 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Those charged along with Salvador were Kehinde Fasasi, Rotimi Kujore, Fatai Adele, Ismaila Abiola, Amos Fawole, Victoria Falowo, Mukaila Odukoya, Oropo Isaac, Mohammed Babangida and Ugochukwu Nwoke.

They, however, pleaded not guilty to the two counts pressed against them.

The magistrate, while adjourning the case till August 27, 2018 to await the advice of the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions, ordered that the politicians be remanded in the prison custody.
