Ife Crisis: Suspects Arraignment Stalled




The arraignment of the 6 suspects held in connection to the March 8th communal clash in Ile-Ife suffered a setback today.
The suspects are earlier expected to be arraigned before an Osun state High court sitting in Osogbo on Tuesday having been moved from the force headquarters in Abuja.
All seem set for the arraignment with maximum security provided within the court premises in anticipation of any break down of law and order. The suspects were brought in an unmarked Toyota Bus also with heavy security.

The arraignment of the 6 suspects held in connection to the March 8th communal clash in Ile-Ife suffered a setback today.
The suspects are earlier expected to be arraigned before an Osun state High court sitting in Osogbo on Tuesday having been moved from the force headquarters in Abuja.
All seem set for the arraignment with maximum security provided within the court premises in anticipation of any break down of law and order. The suspects were brought in an unmarked Toyota Bus also with heavy security.
The suspects and all other security apparatus later moved out of court premises in one swoop without prior notice.


Checks however reveal that the matter is been handled by the force headquarters which filed the case on Monday at the Osun state high court registry and the case assigned to a judge that Monday. The judge who the case is assigned to however has not given his consent to taking up the case or otherwise, a situation that stalled the arraignment of these six suspects.
It would be recalled that the twenty none suspects were initially arrested by the police over the March 8 unrest, 15 were later released and with the police going on to prosecute the remaining six including Oba Ademola Ademiluyi, The Lawarikan of Apojeland. The arraignment is expected to take place on Tuesday.
