Two men were on Friday arraigned before the Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court, Ibadan, for abuse of a corpse.

The police charged Isa Abdulkadir, 39, and Daniel Emmanuel,38, with conspiracy and misconduct with regard to a corpse.

The prosecution counsel, Foluke Adedosu, told the court that the defendants committed the offence on September 19, at about 2:00 p.m., in the Odogbo area, Ibadan.

Adedosu alleged that the defendants improperly and indecently interfered with the corpse of Patrick Alexandra by dumping the remains in a shop.

She said the offence contravened sections 516 and 242(1)(b) of the Criminal laws of Oyo State, 2000.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The magistrate, O. A Enilolobo, admitted the defendants to bail in the sum of N100,000 each and one surety each in like sum.

She adjourned the case until February 21 for a hearing.
