The trial of Akolade Arowolo, 30, who allegedly stabbed his banker-wife, Titilayo, to death in June last year, was stalled due to the absence of three witnesses at the Ikeja High Court on Tuesday.

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Mrs. Olabisi Ogungbesan, told Justice Lateefah Okunnu that the three witnesses – two policemen and a neighbour of the couple – were unavoidably absent.

She said, “A police inspector at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Mr. Buster Ajie; a policeman at the Aswani Police Division, Mr. Cletus, and a neighbour of the couple, Mrs. Hannah Alaka, are absent.

“Ajie is said to be on leave while Cletus said he is presently attending a course. I called Mrs. Alaka but she said she could not make it.”

Ogungbemi prayed the court to adjourn the case till Wednesday (today), adding that she would be able to produce more witnesses.

Arowolo’s lawyer, Mr. Olanrewaju Ajanaku, however, noted that the absence of witnesses could stall the trial but told the court that Wednesday was convenient.

Okunnu subsequently adjourned the case till Wednesday.
