During his cross-examination by Ojukwu’s counsel, Mr Onwuka Egwu, the security guard said that Ojukwu left the apartment on the night of June 15 and did not return to the premises even after Ataga’s body was found.
He testified that when Ojukwu was leaving, he was at his duty post and she waved at him and entered a vehicle.
The witness denied that he told the police that he suspected one Mr Babalola Disu, who also lodged at the apartment at the time the alleged murder happened. Mohammed also told the court that he did not get Ataga’s full view when he came into the premises because he (Ataga) was inside a vehicle.
He also said that the deceased did not come out of his apartment after he entered. jamb results
The witness said it was Ojukwu who used to come out or call him on phone when she needed any help.
Quadri’s counsel, Mr Babatunde Busari, also cross-examined the witness. Busari asked him to confirm if a dispatch rider actually came to the apartment and how many times the dispatch rider came.
The witness testified that a dispatch rider came once to the apartment, adding that the dispatch rider gave Ojukwu a small parcel which he did not know the content.
The witness was, however, re-examined by prosecution counsel, Mr Yusuf Sule, during which he told the court that Ojukwu was the person who came and logged at the apartment. Mohammed said he was able to identify her at a police station during an investigation “because she wears her face mask without covering her nose.
“I was also able to identify her when she removed her face mask.
“The police also asked her (defendant) if she knows me and my name, the defendant answered, ‘Yes’, and mentioned my name, Abu.
Justice Yetunde Adesanya has adjourned the case to November 25 for further trial.
