The Federal Government has issued a notice of discontinuance in the case of Timothy Oludare Adegoke.
The notice, which was contained in charge number CR/015/2022, dated February 7, 2022, and obtained by DAILY POST, asked the concerned parties to, “take notice that the complainant discontinues all of the proceedings in this case against the above-named defendants for further investigation.
Recall that Timothy Oludare Adegoke, an MBA student of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, died in November 2021 in Hilton Hotel, Ile-Ife.
After his death, the Chairman of Hilton Hotel, Dr Rahman Adedoyin, and six others have been arrested and slammed with charges while three others are still at large.
The Adegoke family however got in touch with Femi Falana, a human rights lawyer, to take over the prosecution of the case.
Falana has since written the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba Ahmed, requesting that since the crime was committed in Ile-Ife, Osun State, the case should be referred to the Osun State Attorney General which will enable it to be heard in an Osun State High Court.
