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.

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.
