    Justice Muniru Owolabi of the Oyo state high court at the trial court had ordered the defendant to enter defence on counts 1,2 and 5 of the charges after striking out the 8 out of the 11 count charge.

    In a unanimous judgement by the three judges of the appeal court, they contended that the trial court erred to have ordered the Appellant enter defend on an offence not known to law as prosecution/defence failed to establish a prima facie case against the defendant/Appellant.
