The trial of Seidu Sakiru Adeyemi, a suspected killer of Khadijat Oluboyo, the daughter of former Ondo State deputy governor’s daughter, was stalled yesterday at the State High Court sitting in Akure, the state capital, due to lack of legal representation for the accused.
Adeyemi is facing murder and conspiracy charges for allegedly killing his girlfriend, Khadijat Oluboyo, on July 2 and burying her inside his room at Aratusi, Oke-Aro area of Akure. At the commencement of the trial, the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Kola Olawoye, expressed the readiness of the government to ensure proper prosecution of the case. The commissioner said the government would ensure that justice is done to the suspect.
Khadijat was a final year student of Adekunle Ajasin University in Akungba Akoko (AAUA) until her death. Adeyemi, who was brought to the court by Prisons officials from Olokuta Prison in Akure, told the court that he had no lawyer and expressed doubt if his parents were aware of his trial.
The trial judge, Justice Samuel Bola, directed the prisons welfare officer to contact the suspect’s family to engage a lawyer for him. The judge adjourned the matter till October 2 for hearing.
