OAU Student Death: Court Denies Adedoyin, 6 Others Bail



An Osun State High Court on Monday declined to the bail applications brought before it by the owner of Hilton Hotel, Ile-Ife, Dr Rahman Adedoyin and six others over the death of Timothy Adegoke, an MBA student of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife.

Delivering a ruling on the applications, the presiding judge and Chief Judge of the state, Justice Adepele Ojo said the defendant’s medical conditions are not too serious to be attended to by the correctional service.

She added that the accused persons have failed to prove that the correction service did not have adequate facilities to take care of their medical issues.

Ojo stated that by the nature of the offences preferred against the accused persons demands that the court tread caution in granting such bail applications.
