Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Insp. Zacheaus Folorunsho told the court that the deceased’s brother, Muhammed Adamu reported the matter at the police station when his brother failed to return from tending to their cattle.
He said that Adebayo confessed at the police station that he shot the herder because he was grazing on his farm.
Folorunsho said that the defendant confessed further that he shot the 18-year-old to death and tried to conceal the corpse.
He prayed the court to remand the defendant on the basis that his offence was not ordinarily bailable.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.
