It was learned that policemen who were alerted to the incident, arrested Godwin and arraigned him before the court on two-count of conspiracy and murder.

During the arraignment, the prosecutor, Inspector Folasade Adeyemi, told the court that the defendant’s offenses contravened Sections 269 of the Criminal Code, Cap. 37 Volume 1 Laws of Ondo State, Nigeria, 2006.

In her ruling, the magistrate, Idowu Mayowa, granted the application and adjourned the case till March 17, 2023.
