A man has been alleged to have been beaten to death at the healing school of the Christ Embassy church.
It was garnered by the media that the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), has commenced investigations in order to resolve the mystery surrounding the man named Olatunji Odusan.
The deceased man reportedly died after he was tortured within the premises of the Healing School in Oregun area of Ikeja, Lagos.
The cause of Odusan’s death has not been ascertained as the autopsy report not yet ready.
It was also not certain what the mission of the late Odusan was before going to the Healing School where he met his death. But it was gathered that the deceased might have gone to the Healing Centre for undisclosed deliverance.
However, the SCIID claimed Odusan was severely tortured and beaten until he vomited and became unconscious after which he was rushed to a hospital where he eventually died. The corpse was deposited at the mortuary for an autopsy report.
It can be confirmed that two suspects, Innocent Samuel and Sunday Momoh have been detained at the SCIID for interrogations. They were alleged to have jointly meted out the torture to the deceased before his demise.
The suspects have been charged before the Ebute Metta Magistrates Court for murder and were remanded in prison custody.
When they were arraigned, the prosecutor identified as Inspector Adams, informed the court that it was a case of homicide as such it required the DPP advice.
Thus the Presiding Magistrate, A.O. Komolafe did not take their plea and denied them bail.
The court ordered the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to DPP for advice. It was gathered that if the DPP finds them culpable, the matter will be transferred to High Court where they will face a murder charge.
The defendants may spend the rest of their lives in prison custody if they are tried and convicted for murder.
Meanwhile, the corpse of the late Odusan was still at the mortuary pending when the police will conclude their investigations.
