Offa robbery suspects to be examined for injuries allegedly sustained in police custody

A Kwara State High Court sitting in Ilorin on Monday granted the prayer of defence counsel asking for an independent examination of alleged gunshot injuries sustained by three persons alleged to have participated in the April 5th, 2018 Offa robbery incident that claimed about 33 lives, including those of nine policemen.

Five accused persons are standing trial in the robbery case and they include  Ayoade Akinnibosun, Ibikunle Ogunleye, Adeola Abraham, Salaudeen Azeez and Niyi Ogundiran.

But the court refused a postmortem analysis of the body of the principal suspect in the robbery incident, Michael Adikwu, who the accused persons claimed was deliberately killed by a Police Inspector while in custody at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

The court, during a “trial within trial,” granted the prayer of the defence counsel, Mr. Mathias Emeribe  asking for an
independent examination of the alleged gunshot injuries sustained by the first, second and third accused persons detained in Police custody during the investigation of the robbery incident.
