An Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court on Friday ordered the remand of a housewife, Linda Alapa, who allegedly murdered her 10-year-old housekeeper with a mop stick.

Twenty-eight-year-old Alapa, who resides at Bamigboy, Ikorodu, Lagos, allegedly used a mop stick to beat the housekeeper to death on Dec. 12, 2016.

Chief Magistrate Oluyemisi Adelaja ordered Alapa’s remand at the Ikoyi Prisons custody pending the advice of the state’s director of public prosecutions.

The case has been adjourned till April 24 for mention.
