Security was heightened as the Lawarikan of Apoje land, Oba Ademola Ademiluyi and five others were arraigned before Justice Kudirat Akano.

They all pleaded not guilty to the 14 count charge bordering on murder, conspiracy to commit murder and armed robbery, arson and possession of grievous weapons brought before ‎them.

‎Justice Akano ordered that the accused persons be remanded and adjourned the case to the 14th, 15th and 16th of June 2017 for hearing.
