Woman kills brother in tussle over bucket

An Ilorin Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday remanded a 21-year-old woman, Elizabeth Eze, for allegedly stabbing her brother, Francis, to death over an argument. The prosecutor, Sergeant Balikisu Adu, told the court that the accused stabbed her brother on the chest with a knife, following a fight over a plastic bucket on February 10, 2014 at Chikanda in Baruten Local Government Area of Kwara State. She said that the accused was arraigned on a charge of culpable homicide, a crime that contravenes Section 221 of the Penal Code. Adu objected to a bail application for the accused on the ground that the court cannot grant bail in the case. Magistrate Nuah Ajide, who refused to grant the plea of the accused, ordered her to be remanded at the Okekura Prison, Ilorin.
