Counsel to Adegoke’s family, Femi Falana, demanded that the matter be transferred to Osun after the suspects had been arraigned before a Federal High Court, Abuja.
The hotel owner, Adedoyin, was alleged to have unlawfully interfered with the body while Adedeji Adesola, Magdalena Chiefuna, Adeniyi Aderogba, Oluwale Lawrence, Oyetunde Kazeem and Adebayo Kunle were arraigned on seven-count charge of conspiracy, attempted murder, and murder, among others.
The case was struck out on February 7, 2022.
Meanwhile, a top security source told The Nation that, “Chief Ramon Adedoyin and other suspects have arrived in Osun ahead of the commencement of their trial on Thursday. They arrived in the state on Wednesday evening.”
Police spokesman, Yemisi Opalola, confirmed that the trial will begin today.
