Timothy Adegoke: Court remands Rahman Adedoyin, others

An Osun State High Court sitting in Osogbo, the state capital, has remanded Rahman Adedoyin and six other suspects over the death of Timothy Adegoke.

Oyebola Adepele-Ojo, the presiding judge, gave the order on Thursday during the arraignment of the suspects.

The judge ruled that they should be remanded at the Ilesa correctional facility.

The suspects include Adegoke, Adedeji Adesola, Magdalene Chiefuna, Adeniyi Aderogba, Oluwale Lawrence, Oyetunde Kazeem, and Adebayo Kunle.

The suspects are facing an 11-count charge bordering on conspiracy and murder among others — although they all pleaded not guilty to the charges.

During the court hearing, the counsel representing the suspects moved applications for bail for the first to sixth defendants.

The prosecutor, however, opposed the bail applications.

In her verdict, the judge adjourned the case to Friday to hear the bail application while the trial is expected to resume fully next Monday.

Rahman Adedoyin is the Chairman of Hilton Hotel, Ile-Ife, Osun State, the last known place that Timothy Adegoke lodged prior to his death.
Adegoke, an MBA student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, died under suspicious circumstances at the hotel.
