COVID-19 Protocol stalls Ofa bank robbery case.
Increase in the number people trooping to the high court premises without strict compliance with COVID-19 protocols stalled continuation in the hearing on Ofa bank robbery case.
The kwara State Technical Committee is reported to have frowned at the recent resumption of work in the state judiciary claiming it is responsible for the increase in number of people infected in the state.
The five accused persons standing trial in connection with the robbery attack Ayoade Akinibosun, Ibikunle Ogunleye, Adeola Abraham, Salaudeen Azeez and Niyi Ogundiran were all brought to the court as directed by presiding justice Haleemat Salman at the last hearing but the court could not sit at the adjourned date.
The explanation for this by the court was the need to maintain social distancing at public gathering.
The officials of the Nigeria correctional center who brought the suspects to the court said they were not briefed on the development before they brought the suspects to the court on the fixed adjournment date.
No date has been fixed for the continuation of hearing in the case.
