BREAKING: Adedoyin To Die By Hanging Over Adegoke’s Murder
An Osun State High Court has found the popular hotel owner, Dr Ramon Adedoyin guilty in the murder case of Timothy Adegoke.
Adegoke, a former master’s degree student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, was reportedly murdered between November 5 and 7, 2021, at Hilton Honours Hotel, Ile-Ife.
Chief Judge of Osun State, Adepele Ojo, while delivering her judgement on the case, held that the circumstantial evidence available to the court, pointed to the killing of Adegoke while being a guest at the hotel owned by Adedoyin.
The Judge said Adedoyin’s decision not to enter the witness box did not help him, as the circumstantial evidence had shifted the burden of proof on him.
Justice Ojo also said Adedoyin’s decision not to enter the witness box meant he agreed to the murder charge pressed against him by the prosecution.
The Court dismissed the alibi pleaded on behalf of the convict by his counsel, who said the hotel owner was in Abuja for many days around the time the death of the late Adegoke occurred.
