An Ebute Meta Magistrates’ Court on Monday remanded a casual worker, Amos Ikechukwu, at the Ikoyi Prisons in Lagos for allegedly killing her Chinese employer.
On June 16, at about 8.45 p.m., Chinese woman Alice Xu was allegedly suffocated to death by Ikechukwu, her employee.





The incident took place Xu’s apartment at No.1, Toye Close, Akinola Crescent, Adeniyi Jones in Ikeja, north of Lagos.
Ikechukwu allegedly killed Xu after stealing N872, 000 and $2,000 from her apartment.
Chief Magistrate Oluyemisi Adelaja, ordered the remand of the accused, pending a legal advice from the Lagos State director of public prosecutions. The accused, working with a firm known as Green World Company, is facing a two-count of murder and stealing.
The court did not take his plea. The Prosecutor, Insp. Chinalu Uwadione, told the court that the accused had beaten Xu to a state of stupor, bound her hands and legs before covering her face with a polythene bag, resulting in her death.
The prosecutor said that the accused had ransacked Xu’s apartment and stolen her valuables after killing her.
He said the accused claimed that Xu was in the habit of harassing him and had vowed to deal with her, which he eventually did on June 16.
Uwadione disclosed that Ikechukwu disguised as a mad man in a bid to evade security check at the entrance of the estate after killing Xu but was recognised and apprehended.
The prosecutor said the offences contravened Sections 223 and 287 (5) (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The case has been adjourned until Aug. 21.
