DPP advice stalls trial of inmates accused of murder in police custody


By Nosa Ekhator

The absence of Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) advice has stalled the trial of three awaiting trial inmates, Edafe Isaac, Obi Ebube, and Solomon Husseini who were remanded in the Nigerian Correctional services by a Benin High court on a two count murder charges three months ago, pending the DPP’s advice on the case.

The police had charged the three persons of murder of one Osas Obazee while in the custody of the Nigeria police, Edo State Command.

The deceased, was allegedly detained in the same cell with the accused persons before the three accused persons allegedly conspired to kill him.

After diligent investigations by the police, the matter was then charged to court where he was remanded into the Nigeria Correctional Facility, pending DPP’s advice on the case.

TheNewspad reports that three months after the incident, justice is yet to be served to the accused persons whose fates remain on the Hanger’s cliff as no definite time has been given for the DPP’s advice which is a requirement in the administration of Criminal Justice system.
