The men were not required to plead to the indictable charge and were remanded to prison until Nov. 1, 2016, for the commencement of a preliminary inquiry.

Pollin was evidently not pleased that journalists were photographing him and his co-accused as police escorted them from the holding area to a Prisons van.

“Boy, alyo nah tired with f—ing picture? F— wrong with alyo dey?” he said as some bystanders encouraged him and the other accused men to hide their faces.

Police say that Jones died around 11 p.m. on July 20 after being attacked and shot several times about the body.

He also received a chop wound to the back of the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.
