The two domestic staff  who murdered former Vice- Chancellor of Federal University of Technology,  Akure, FUTA, Professor Albert Ilemode, were on Wednesday docked before an Akure Chief Magistrate’s Court.
 
The accused persons, Daniel Ita Effiom and Olayemi Bamitale, were arraigned on a five-count charge of murder and robbery before the  court sitting at Oke-Eda in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
 
Police prosecutor, Inspector Isah Atanegbe, told the court that investigation revealed that Daniel and Olayemi conspired to commit murder by strangling the deceased to death in his residence in Ijapo Estate, Akure, on June  21, 2015.
 
Atanegbe said the offence was contrary to and punishable under Section 324 of the Criminal Code Cap.37 Vol. 1 Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria 2006.
 
The charge read: “That you Daniel Ita Effiom and Olayemi Bamitale on June 21, 2015 at about 9pm at No.1 Ikere Street, Ijapo Estate commit felony to wit: murder and thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 324 of the Criminal Code Cap.37 Vol.1 Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria 2006.
 
“That you Daniel Ita Effiom and Olayemi Bamitale on the same date, time and place in the aforementioned magisterial district did kill one Professor Albert Adeoye Ilemobade by jointly strangling him to death and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 316 and punishable under Section 319 of Criminal Code Cap.37 Vol.1 Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria 2006.”
 
“That you Daniel Ita Effiom and Olayemi Bamitale on the same date, time and place in the aforementioned magisterial district did conspire together to commit felony to wit: robbery and thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 403A of the Criminal Code Cap.37 Vol.1 Laws of Ondo state of Nigeria 2006.
 
“That you Daniel Ita Effiom and Olayemi Bamitale on the same date, time and place in the aforementioned magisterial district did rob one late Professor Albert Adeoye Ilemobade of an SUV with number plate Lagos GGE-589-CF valued yet unknown and the sum of seven thousand naira property of late Professor Albert Adeoye Ilemobade and thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 401 of the Criminal Code Cap.37 Vol.1 Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria 2006.”
 
Atanegbe, therefore, pleaded with the court to remand the suspected killers of the Prof. in prison custody until the legal advice from office of the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, was received.
 
The presiding Chief Magistrate, Mrs. Victoria Bob-Manuel, thereafter, ordered that the accused persons, Daniel, 24, and Olayemi,36, be remanded in Olokuta Medium Prison and adjourned the matter till September 18 for hearing.
 
Meanwhile, a visit to the family house of the late Prof. of Veterinary Medicine showed that arrangement  was in top gear to give him a befitting burial.
 
Family members, his children and some clergymen were seen putting heads together in the planning of the date of the burial and his final resting place.
 
The wife , Olakitan , 73, was still being consoled by his children, former colleagues of the husband in FUTA, and church members.
 
Security has been beefed up  in the residence of the late university don.
 
Late Professor Ilemobade,  78, was strangulated by his aides who dumped his corpse inside  a  generator house.
 
The two aides, the driver and night guard, later fled with his vehicle but were apprehended in Ogun State while  trying to sell the  car for a ridiculous price.
 
They later confessed and were transferred from Ogun State police Command to  Ondo command.
 
The accused have confessed that they murdered the professor in cold blood in order to steal his  SUV and  avoid being traced by the tracking device in the vehicle.
