Wariz Oladeinde, one of the adolescent males detained in connection with the death of Sofiat Okeowo in Abeokuta, was released by an Ogun State magistrate’s court.
Sofiat was slain and her head was severed and burned for money in the Oke Aregba region of Ogun State by her former and present lovers, Mustakeem Balogun and Soliu Majekodunmi.
While being detained, the youngsters stated that they planned to burn the head for money rituals, claiming to have seen the method on Facebook.
Oladeinde and Abdulgafar Lukman were arrested with the two.
On Monday, an Abeokuta Magistrate Court released Oladeinde, who had previously been held to the Oba correctional institution in the Obafemi-Owode Local Government.
Chief Magistrate I.O Abudu, stated that Oladeinde was discharged on the legal advice of the state Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
According to Abudu, “no charge was recorded against Oladeinde in the legal advice.”
The Chief Magistrate said his judgement was based on a police investigation, which he said proved his innocence in the crime.
The matter had been adjourned till April 22 for further hearing of the charges against the remaining three boys.
