The Presiding Magistrate, I. O. Abudu, who did not take their plea, ordered that they be remanded in the Correctional Centre.

According to the prosecutor, the couple conspired and murdered Odeh, who was a close friend of Adejumoke.

One of the defendants, Adejumoke, was said to have invited the deceased (her friend) to their house and prepared noodles with a sleeping substance.

The prosecutor explained that after the deceased slept off, Adejumoke allegedly strangled her, butchered her body, and sold her head for N70,000 to a suspected ritualist at Ibadan, Oyo State.

Jackson also alleged that the offensive odour from the remaining part of the dismembered body attracted the attention of neighbours, leading to the couple’s arrest.

The prosecutor said, “The offence contravenes sections 324 and 319(1) of the Criminal Laws of Ogun State 2006”.
