Edo State -- One Suraju Muaju has been remanded in prison by the Area Customary Court sitting in Agenebode for allegedly murdering his elder brother.

The offence was committed on August 25.

Muaju allegedly killed his brother at night in his sleep with a cutlass at their father's residence in Imiegba clan, Estako East local government area of Edo State.

The President of the court, Cyril Usifoh, ordered the suspect be remanded in prison and directed that the case file be taken to the Directorate of Public Prosecution for legal advice.

Also, an 11-year-old primary four pupil has told an Ikpoba-Okha Area Customary Court how a 71-year-old man, named as Okunrobo Odia, defiled her.

The suspect, however, said it was the victim asked him to make love to her, adding that he only "touched her buttocks."

Meanwhile, the victim testified that the suspect came to buy N10 worth of local gin at her mother's shop. According to the girl, the suspect followed her when she went to pick something inside the house, and was surprised when he removed his shorts.

She said the suspect removed her pants and inserted his manhood inside her despite crying for help.

The President of the court, Princess Esther Eweka, adjourned the case to November 21 for further hearing.
