Yewande Oyeniran, the Ibadan-based lawyer who allegedly killed her husband, Lowo Oyeniran, at their home in Akobo, Ibadan, on February 2, 2016, re-appeared at the Chief Magistrate’s Court in Iyaganku on Tuesday but was shortly after returned to Agodi Prison from where she was brought.
The Chief Magistrate’s Court was told that Oyo State’s Department of Public Prosecution (DPP) had given legal advice that the case involving the accused be transferred to the state high court.
Amos Adewale, the police officer investigating the death of Lowo and the involvement of the estranged wife, informed the Chief Magistrate in charge of the case, Mrs. Kehinde Durosaro-Tijani when the case was mentioned, that based on the legal advice from the DPP, the Magistrate’s court lacked the jurisdiction to hear the case.
Consequently, at the end of the short proceeding, Chief Magistrate Kehinde Durosaro-Tijani adjourned till March 1, 2016 and Yewande was taken back to Agodi prison in a prison van.
Yewande was earlier brought into the courtroom with her face covered with a veil, a strange development that infuriated family members of the deceased and their lawyer, Kehinde Adesiyan.
Oluseun Abimbola, counsel to the accused however saw nothing wrong in Yewande’s covering her face with a veil, saying he had the right to protect his client by covering her face.
