There is fresh trouble for embattled Fulani leader and alleged kidnap kingpin, Wakili.

Wakili is currently being remanded in the Abolongo Correctional Facility in Oyo State, following an order from a magistrate court in the Iyaganku area of Ibadan, Oyo State on Tuesday, March 16.

Wakili’s fate was declared by the presiding judge, Emmanuel Idowu after the police command in the state charged him and his sons, Abu, Samaila, and Aliyu Manu for murder, kidnapping, and armed robbery.

The prosecuting counsel, Adewale Amos, told the court that the accused was linked to the death of a police corporal, Akinwale Akande.

The Chief Magistrate did not take pleas of the suspects for want in jurisdiction. After ordering the police to return the case file to the state Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), Idowu adjourned the hearing to Monday, May 17.

Recall that Wakili had denied being involved in any form of crime all through his stay in the area. During interrogation by officers of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in Iyaganku, Ibadan, on Tuesday, March 9, Wakili said he has spent not less than 20 years in Ibarapa without being linked with any case of kidnapping until his arrest by members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC).

The embattled herder said on the day he was picked up by members of the OPC, one of the occupants of his house, Tande, was killed, admitting also that he has many cows which sometimes find their way into the farmlands of Ibarara natives.
