But counsel to the family of the deceased, Mr. Femi Falana, SAN, had written to the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, asking that the matter be returned to Osun State, where the crime was allegedly committed.
Upon return to court on February 7, the prosecutor withdrew the matter.

The spokesperson of Osun Police Command, Yemisi Opalola, confirmed the development, stated that the trial would commence on Thursday.
Opalola said, “I wouldn’t know if they are around or not, but I know the matter will begin tommorow”.
