Court adjourns case of medical student

25 September 2013, 06:33

Ibadan - An Oyo State High Court on Tuesday adjourned to November 5, the trial of four men, charged with alleged murder of Anwal Shanono, a 500-level medical student of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.

The accused are Akinwumi Adebisi, Olamide  Oladeji, Sadiq  Adedeji and Tajudeen Arowotosuna.

Justice M. L. Abimbola adjourned the case due to the absence in court of the prosecuting counsel, Kofo Oguntoyinbo.

Oguntoyinbo had earlier told the court that the defendants were arraigned on three counts of conspiracy, murder and unlawful possession.

She alleged that the defendants conspired to murder Shanono.

Oguntoyinbo said that Sadiq Adedeji was also caught with Indian hemp.

She said the incident happened on June 4, 2011 at Total Filling Station at Iwo Road area of Ibadan at about 9.30 p.m.

The prosecutor said the offences contravened section 324, 316 and 5(1) of the Criminal Code Cap 38 Vol. II Laws of Oyo Sate, 2000.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the defendants had earlier been granted bail.
