Two men have reportedly murdered a three month old baby

Magistrate Risikat Olayemi, who gave the ruling, said the men should be kept behind bars pending their arraignment in the proper court.

The offences contravened Sections 254, 316, 319, 324, 351 and 516 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2002.

The case has been adjourned until August 27.
