Hammed Rasheed, 29, also known as Oko-Ilu, is a wanted cultist in Osun State and has been charged in court.

On Wednesday, Oko-Ilu was hauled before Chief Magistrate Olufemi Ayilara of the Osogbo Magistrate Court by the police.

The alleged member of a cult was charged with nine counts that included murder, the illegal killing of two people, disturbing the peace, cultism, and other offenses.

He was accused of shooting Inspector Gbenga Eke and killing Hassan Adedeji as well as Idowu (also known as Delta).

Because the magistrate rejected Oko-plea, Ilu's the police prosecutor, Inspector Elisha Olusegun, did not read the charge sheet in court.

The hearing was postponed until October 7 by Magistrate Ayilara, who placed him on remand in the Ilesa prison.

The duplicate case file had to be sent to the Department of Public Prosecution (DPP) for legal counsel, the Chief Magistrate further directed.
