A 21-year-old Nigerian lady, Gift Mike, was on Monday brought before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrate’s Court for allegedly killing her 48-year-old South African boyfriend, Daniel Grant.
The accused, a cosmetologist, was arraigned on one-count charge of murder.
The Prosecutor, CSP Effiong Asuquo, told the court that the accused committed the offence on May 5, at Room 201, Emerald Cove Hotel, No. 18B, Sinari Daranijo St., Victoria Island.
Asuquo alleged that the accused killed the South African at about 1.30 a.m. on the said date.
He added that the offence contravened Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Section 223 prescribes a death sentence for convicts.
The Chief Magistrate, Mr A.O. Komolafe, however, admitted the accused to a bail of N100, 000 with two responsible and gainfully employed sureties each in like sum.
Komolafe then referred the case to the Director of Public Prosecution for legal advice.
He, however, adjourned the matter until July 11.
