Ibadan – AN Oyo State High Court yesterday admitted some exhibits allegedly used by a former Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Alhaji Mukaila aka Auxiliary during the mayhem that claimed the life of a medical student and others at Iwo Road interchange, Ibadan.
The exhibits tendered by the Investigating Police Officer in the murder case, Mr. Idowu Akeem include a Peugeot 607 car, a Nissan Micra car and some ammunition.
The ex-NURTW leader is standing trial on murder and conspiracy charges against him.
The violence which happened in March 2004 led to the death of many other people when some hoodlums opened fire on them at the ever-busy interchange.
The accused was alleged to have conspired with Saheed Kareem,Taiwo Tijani, Abu Kareem and Kazeem Kayode, and others who are at large, to murder Adekunle Oladipupo by shooting on March 2, 2014, around 9.45 pm at the Iwo Road Motor-Park, Ibadan.
During his arraignment, Mukaila pleaded not guilty to the two charges.
When being cross-examined by the Director of Public Prosecution, Mr Tajudeen Abdulganiyu, the police said the exhibits were the ones used by the defendant in committing the crime.
After several arguments from the defence and prosecution counsel, Justice Eni Esan handling the case was adjourned to June 23, 2015 for further hearing.
