Corps member arraigned for allegedly killing roadside hawker

A serving Corp member, Odedele Feranmi, on Wednesday was arraigned before an Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court for reckless driving and alleged killing of one Pelumi Olasunkanmi.

The death of Pelumi, a 16-year-old Junior Secondary School 3 student of Coker Memorial High School, Ikirun, occurred last week Friday when he was hit by a car driven by Odedele along Osogbo/Gbongan Road.

The 29-year-old Odedele was said to have driven his car in a reckless manner and hit the deceased, who was selling garden eggs by the roadside.

Odedele was said to be returning to Osogbo from Ibadan to resume at his Primary Place of Assignment, having been deployed in Osun for his mandatory one year service by graduates.

Addressing the court, Police prosecutor, Mr. Oladoye Joshua, said the accused person killed Pelumi while driving his Honda car with the registration number Lagos MUN 187 CU around 11.30am.

Oladoye further alleged that the offence contravened the provision of section 81(1) Cap 115, Vol 6, Laws of Osun State, 2003.

Mr. Bola Abimbola-Ige, while reacting to the claims by the prosecutor, moved an oral application for bail of his client and assured the judge that the accused will not jump bail.

While ruling on the bail application, Magistrate Olusegun Ayilara said, “The accused person is reluctantly granted bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum.”

He adjourned the matter to January 30, 2019.
