Dr. Daramola, a consultant to the World Bank country office in Abuja on Social Protection and HIV/AIDS, was slaughtered in his bedroom in his home town, Ijan-Ekiti, in 2006 while late Tunde Omojola was killed on 28th May 2008 at Ifaki Ekiti during the councillorship election.

Olatunji, who was Gov. Fayose’s Personal Assistant during his first time between 2003 and 2006 was on Tuesday arraigned at an Ado-Ekiti High Court over the alleged double murders.

However, the trial was stalled following the absence of Hon. Aina, , who was said to have travelled abroad for medical treatment.

NAN reports that both the prosecuting counsel, Mr. Adekunle Adetowubo, and counsel to the defendants, Mr. Adedayo Adewumi, sought a brief adjournment and also prayed the court to issue a Witness summon, so that all the witnesses can be brought to court at the next adjournment date.

“This matter has stayed for long and I wish we continue now.

“But since both parties had sought for this adjournment under the circumstance, I hereby adjourn the case to April 27, 2017, for hearing.

“I also direct that all processes be served on the prosecuting witnesses to appear in court on that day,” Justice Fowe was quoted as saying by NAN.
