Hearing of appeal over Adedoyin/Timothy Adegoke murder case begins in Akure.

Hearing in an appeal filed by Dr. Rahmon Adedoyin, against the death sentence handed down on him by an Osun State High Court, which convicted him over the murder of Timothy Adegoke, suffered setback on Tuesday.

Dissatisfied with the judgment of the lower court, Adedoyin, owner of Hilton Hotel, Ile-Ife, where Adegoke died, had approached the Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, to challenge the death verdict.
Our source gathered that the matter before the appellate court was adjourned indefinitely, as there were many cases before it, hence his appeal was not mentioned.

At the court sitting on Tuesday, it was learnt that more than 25 cases came up during the proceedings, hence there was no time to mention Adedoyin’s case.

A court official, who pleaded anonymity, later confirmed to our correspondent that the case was not called because so many cases were heard on the same day.
