An Akure Chief Magistrate Court has ordered the remand of a 24-year-old labourer, Sunday Clement in Olokuta Correctional Centre, for allegedly beheading a 30-year-old farmer, Taye Alatoye.
Clement, whose address was not provided, was arrested by men of Ondo State Police Command after he allegedly killed the victim on his way to the farm.
It was gathered that on the day of the incident, Clement and Alatoye were going to the farm, when he suddenly moved backward, removed his sharpened cutlass, and cut the victim on his neck, leaving his head dangling without any genuine reason.
He was later brought to court and charged with murder.
According to the police prosecutor, Mary Adebayo, the defendant committed the offence on September 4, 2023, at about 2:30 pm at Baba Odun Camp, Ofosu in Odigbo Local Government Area of the state.
