The Chief Magistrate, Mrs O.A. Komolafe, who gave the ruling on Wednesday, remanded the 24-year-old in Kirikiri Prison for allegedly stabbed her husband to death in the Ikorodu area of the state.

She said the defendant, who appeared before her on a charge of murder, should remain behind bars pending the advice from the State Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
