An 18-year-old suspected online fraudster, Victor Oji, who allegedly set his girlfriend ablaze in Iba Town in Ojo Lagos, was remanded on Tuesday by an Ebute Meta Magistrates’ Court.

The Magistrate, Mrs A. Kusanu, did not take the teenager’s plea, but ordered that he be kept at the Ikoyi Custodial Centre, Lagos, pending advice from the state director of public prosecutions.

Kusanu adjourned the case until Feb. 19.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Jimah Iseghede, told the court that the defendant committed the murder on Dec. 7, 2019, at 10.00a.m. at No. G549, Army Post Service Estate, Iba Town.
