A Chief Magistrates’  Court in Ebute Meta, Lagos State on Monday ordered that a  37-year-old man, Jamiu Popoola who allegedly beat up a woman to death be remanded in a correctional centre.

The police charged Popoola with murder.

Chief Magistrate O.G. Oghre, who did not take the plea of Popoola, ordered that he be remanded  in Ikoyi Correctional Centre, pending legal advice from the State Director of Public Prosecutors (DPP).

She ordered the police to return the case file to the DPP.
