Meanwhile, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Modupe Olaluwoye, told the court that the men committed the offences on May 22 at Alasia along Oke-Ira road in Ajah, near Lagos.
She alleged that the accused had been patronising a ritualist, who asked them to provide a human heart in exchange for wealth.
She said that the accused had lured their 21-year-old brother, James Isaiah, into the bush, where they killed him with a knife and cut off his heart.
“The police were able to trace them to their house where they had admitted killing their brother for ritual purposes.
“The ritualist is however, still at large,” Olaluwoye said.
The prosecutor said that the offences contravened Sections 223, 233 and 165 (a) (b) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Magistrate Oluwatoyin Oghere ordered that the case file should be sent to the Lagos State director of public prosecutions for advice.
She, however, adjourned the case until August 15.
