However, when the trio were called into the dock, Diekola who had a plaster on his hand, slumped and had to be given a chair to sit on.

His counsel, Barrister Bukola Onifade told the court that the accused is seriously sick and was brought to court from OAU teaching hospital.

Though the prosecutor, Felix Okocha prayed the court to take the plea of the accused as he was, Chief Magistrate Olusegun Ayilara said that he could not take the plea of a dying person and thereby adjourned the case till November 23.
