An Enugu Chief Magistrate Court presided over by U.I. Jideofor has remanded Ujunwa Ugwuoke in the Enugu Correctional Centre for the alleged murder of nine-year-old Precious Korshima.

The two-count charge with No. MEN/14C/2023, which was read to the accused borders on felony and murder.

Inspector Bonaventure Nnadozie, appeared for the prosecution while Olu Omotayo, the President of Civil Rights Realisation and Advancement Network (CRRAN), held brief for the family of the deceased.

Inspector Nnadozie, thereafter, tendered the three original case files in respect of the case and applied that the 12 witnesses listed in the case file be bound over to testify at the High Court to give evidence.

The Court admitted the three case files and exhibits.

The three case files comprised of case files from New Haven Police Station, Anti-kidnapping Base, and that of Homicide Section State CID, Enugu.

The Court held that it lacked jurisdiction to try the murder case and bound over the 12 witnesses in the sum of four hundred thousand naira to give evidence at the High Court when called upon to do so.

The accused was ordered to be remanded at the Correctional Centre Enugu and the Police case files admitted as exhibits ordered to be transferred to the office of the Attorney General for Advice.

The case was adjourned to March 2, 2023.
