Onigbanjo urged the court presided over by Justice Hakeem Oshodi to admit in evidence statements of Onwuamadike and his co-defendants before the police.

He reacted to submissions of counsel to the fourth and sixth defendants that their statements were obtained in an extra-judicial manner.

Onwuamadike, Uche Amadi, Okechukwu Nwachukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi, Victor Chukwunonso Aduba and a woman, Ogechi Uchechukwu, are standing trial on a two-count charge of conspiracy and kidnapping.

“The fourth defendant admitted that part of the statement was written by him and that the other part not written by him; such a statement cannot be separated,” he said.

The attorney-general informed the judge that the prosecution filed a written address dated Aug, 26.

The judge adjourned the case until Oct. 18.
