An Osun State Hight Court, sitting in Osogbo, on Tuesday refused the bail application of Kayode Esuleke, the custodian of the masquerade that attacked Muslims in a mosque where a worshipper, Moshood Salawudeen, was killed.
Esuleke and his son, Ifasola Esuleke, were arraigned in court alongside two traditionalists, Kola Adeosun and Akeem Idowu, on September 14, 2021.
They were charged with 13 counts, including murder, attempted murder, malicious damage, assault, breach of public peace, engaging in a public fight, among others.
They had since been remanded at the Correctional Centre in Ilesa, pending the hearing of the bail application.
At the resumed hearing of the case on Tuesday, counsel to the accused persons, Bola Ige, argued their bail application, but prosecution counsel, Biodun Badiora, countered the application.
Ruling, the presiding judge, Justice Ayo Oyebiyi, refused the bail application and ordered the accused persons to once again be remanded at the Correctional Center in Ilesa.
Justice Oyebiyi adjourned the matter till September 23, 2021.
