The Chief State Counsel, Mr Muyiwa Ogunleye, and his colleague, the State Counsel, Mrs Ibukun Adeoye, who prosecuted the case, however, called for four witnesses and tender exhibits in support of the case.

The prosecutor thereafter tendered as exhibits the deceased’s autopsy report and the murder weapon before the court.

In their submissions, the defence counsels, Shina Olaniyan, Folashade Ipede, and Suleiman Akano, gave evidence in their defence and called for no additional witnesses.

They thereafter prayed the court to dismiss the case against the convicts, arguing that “the prosecution did not prove the case of murder, conspiracy to rob, and unlawful possession of firearms against the defendants.”.
In his judgement, the presiding judge, Justice Adedapo Adeniji, affirmed that the prosecution proved all the cases beyond reasonable doubt.
