The presiding magistrate, Mr W.A. Salam, who did not take the plea of Abasiama, ordered that the defendant should be remanded in the Ikoyi Correctional Centre pending the issuance of legal advice from the office of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Temitope Adegbie had earlier told the court that Abasiama committed the offence on August 25, at Ebute Area in Ikorodu.

He alleged that Abasiama stabbed his 23-year-old girlfriend, Cynthia Edeya, with a knife on her head and stomach.

Adegbie said, “The deceased got into a heated argument because the defendant alleged that his girlfriend bad-mouthed him to his benefactor who was helping him to work on promoting his album. In the heat of the argument, he picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed her. She died before she got to the hospital.”
