A 17-year-old, who reportedly stabbed another teenager to death, was remanded by an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates Court in Lagos State on Thursday.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs A.O. Komolafe, ordered that the defendant should be kept at the Special Correctional Centre for Boys in Oregun, Lagos.

The defendant, a resident of Agunfoye, Igbogbo, Ikorodu, Lagos State, was brought on a two-count charge of conspiracy and murder.

The court did not take his plea, NAN reports.
