After killing of at least 32 people, the five suspects involved in the  Offa robbery incident have pleaded not guilty.


The suspects were first made to stand before the Ilorin High Court on 
April 5, 2018 to answer to the robbery in Offa, Kwara.

They were accused of a five count crime which includes, conspiracy, robbery, illegal possession of two AK- 47 firearms and culpable homicide. 


Their lawyer, Mr Mathias Abaribe, had asked that he be given a week to enable him meet with his clients and prepare for their defence, but the prosecutor raised objections to the request.

The Presiding Judge, Justice Halimah Salma has, however, adjourned the case till January 7, 2019, for the commencement of definite trial. 


This development comes days after the Police confirmed the death of one of the principal suspects in the case, Michael Adikwu.
