The murder suspects, Ochei Nnamdi, Wilfred Oyono and Ofuonye Ofuh who wrecked havoc and allegedly killed one Cyprian Kumaorun at the height of the crisis that recently engulfed Idumuje-Ugboko community in Aniocha North LGA of Delta State have been arraigned at the Magistrate Court, Issele-Uku, today.

They were arraigned on two count charges of conspiracy to commit murder and murder, before the Chief Magistrate Vincent Okonta.

The charges were read thus: “That you Ochei Nnamdi (m), Wilfred Oyono (m), Ofuonye Ofuh (m) and others now at large, on or about the 24th day of May, 2017, at Idumuje-Ugboko community in the Issele-Uku Magisterial District, did conspire amongst yourselves to commit felony to wit: murder and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 324 of the Criminal Code Cap C21 Vol. 1 Law of Delta State of Nigeria 2006”.

Continuing, the second count charge was read thus: “That you Ochei Nnamdi (m), Wilfred Oyono (m), Ofonye Ofuh (m) and others now at large, on or about the 24th day of May, 2017, at Idumuje-Ugboko community in the Issele-Uku Magisterial District, did unlawfully kill one Cyprian Kumaorun by shooting him with a gun and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 316 (1) punishable under section 319 of the Criminal Code Cap C21 Vol. 1 Law of Delta State of Nigeria 2006”.

The Chief Magistrate, Vincent Okonta however expressed disappointment that nobody even came to represent the accused persons in court. Meanwhile, the Nominal Complainant was represented by a Counsel, Barr. S. Ngbakor.

The Magistrate therefore, adjourned the case to August 21st, ruling that the accused persons be remanded at the Federal Prisons Agbor, pending report from the Department of Public Prosecution, DPP.
