An Islamic cleric, Taofeek Adams, on Monday appeared before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly severing the head of a worshiper (Read HERE)The accused, 61, a resident of Masinowe Compound, Ikoga in Badagry, was charged with conspiracy and murder. 

The court could not take his plea, as Magistrate A.S. Okubule said that she needed advice from the state director of public prosecutions. Okubule therefore ordered the remand of the accused at the Ikoyi Prisons custody pending the advice.


The prosecutor, Insp. Chinalu Uwadione, had told the court that Adams (a.k.a. Kiekie) severed the head of one Oluwakemi Afolabi, 38, who worshiped in a mosque he presided over. Uwadione said that the cleric committed the offences on March 19 at 4.00p.m. at Waterside, Ikoga-Zebbe in Badagry.

He said that the deceased had come to seek spiritual help from the cleric. “The accused beheaded the deceased before chopping off her other parts for ritual purposes. “He was apprehended when members of the community saw him carrying a sack soaked with blood,” Uwadione said.

He noted that the offences contravened sections 222 and 233 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The court adjourned the case until July 14 for mention.
