Sunday, 42, who resides at No. 5, Balogun St., Gbara in Lekki, is facing a charge of murder.
His plea was not taken.
Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Kehinde Olatunde tells the court that Sunday committed the offence on April 2 at 4.45 a.m. at Jakande Roundabout in Lekki.
Olatunde alleges that the defendant had used a plank to hit one Denir Sapeton, 55, which resulted in his death.
“The defendant accused the deceased of stealing his phone from where he was charging it.
“But the deceased told him he was innocent of the accusation. Sunday picked a plank and used it to hit the deceased several times and that resulted in the death.”
The prosecutor says that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Section 223 stipulates death sentence for offenders.
Meanwhile, the case was adjourned until May 16.
