The Osun State High Court has dismissed a petition filed by the prosecutor informing the court that he was not guilty of the murder of Timothy Adegoke last Friday.
The move comes as the trial resumes over the murder of Timothy Adegoke at the Osun State High Court in Osogbo.
Forget it, lawyers for the suspects, Rahmon Adedoyin and six other suspects have pleaded not guilty to the murder of Timothy Adegoke in Ile Ife.
The suspects explained that all the evidence presented by the police and the prosecution was not sufficient to prosecute them.
As a result, they say they have nothing to do with the death of the deceased.
But after the trial last Friday, the prosecutor’s office and the prosecutor filed a motion to explain why the defendants were in court or not.
Rahmon Adedoyin and the other suspects must file a complaint against the 32 evidence that the plaintiff did not file – Judge
Delivering the verdict today, Justice Adepele Ojo said he had considered the arguments of the plaintiff and the plaintiff as to whether or not the suspects were in court.
He said with the evidence presented by the plaintiffs in court, it has been revealed that Timothy Adegoke lost his life in the Hilton hotel in the city of Love, which belongs to Adedoyin.
Judge Adepele Ojo further said that the plaintiffs brought 32 pieces of evidence to the court, which confirmed that the suspects had a case to consider over Adegoke’s death.
He announced that he had not yet ruled on whether they were guilty or not but it was necessary for them to sue, and explain how the incident took place.
“They are not guilty of the crime but the law must be heard by the lawyers of the suspects to ensure that justice is done.
“I advise the suspects’ lawyer to be prepared to comment on whether the suspects know about Timothy Adegoke’s death.”
Prosecutor MO Omashun said the verdict was an indication that justice would be served in the case of Timothy Adégòkè because if the court dropped the case, justice would not be possible.
Igun Femi Falana explains why he wants to seize power from the Osun government:
Attorney-General Femi Falana, Fatimah Adeshina, explained why Falana Corner had written to the Osun government.
He explained that it was the government that prosecuted all crimes under our law, through the police.
Adeshina said that when the suspects declared their innocence, Falana decided that he wanted to appear before the police to prosecute the suspects.
However, under the law, any lawyer who is not under the law cannot come forward and appear before the police in any criminal case unless the state government has the legal authority to do so.
He explained that Falana was requesting the Osun state government not to prosecute the suspects.
Adeshina said the Osun state government had received the letter, and they were waiting for a response.
The trial is set to begin on April 15, 2022.
If the Osun government does not enforce the law, it will be difficult for me to sue Rahmon Adedoyin – Falana
Earlier in the day, it was reported that Femi Falana, a prominent lawyer representing the family of Timothy Adegoke in the ongoing murder case in the Osogbo High Court, had spoken out against the ongoing trial. .
Forget it, on Friday the suspects in the case, Ramon Adedoyin and six other suspects, announced that they would not be prosecuted for the murder charges against them.
Falana was quick to point out that there was no evidence that the suspects were innocent, and promised to use legal force to prosecute them.
The attorney general has sent a letter to the Osun State Attorney General, Femi Akande, requesting legal action to reach the plaintiffs.
He said the rule of law would apply to prosecuting the murder of Timothy Adegoke at Ramon Adedoyin’s Hilton Hotel in Love House.
Falana argued that unless the Osun state government gave him the power to prosecute the six suspects along with Rahmon Adedoyin, it would be difficult for him to continue with the case.
The reason is that the charges against the suspects are criminal acts against the Osun state government.
So far, the Osun state government has not acted on Femi Falana’s request.
Speaking to Punch newspaper, the Osun state attorney general, Akande said he was also waiting for Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to authorize him to respond to Falana’s question.
He said Governor Oyetola would decide on the course of action they would take regarding the legal force demanded by Falana.
Forget it, on the last Friday of the trial the suspects in the Timothy Adegoke death trial were acquitted on the charges against them.
The suspects made the announcement when their lawyer, Amosun, summoned them to testify in court.
The trial is set to begin on Wednesday to determine the fate of the case.
