A High Court sitting in Ogwashi-Uku, Delta state has adjourned hearing in a suit between the State versus one Michael Albert, following complicity surrounding the murder of Mr. Felix Onyeka Nduka, an undergraduate of Delta state Polytechnic, Ogwasi-Uku.
Recall that late Felix Onyeka Nduka on 29 May 2012 shot dead at Aboh-Ogwashi by unknown assailants which led to the arrest and arraignment of the suspect (Michael Albert), alleged to have claimed ownership of the motorcycle belonging to the deceased shortly after his gruesome murder.
After the Prosecuting Counsel, Barr. H. O. Ghoghome examined one of the witnesses, Chidiebere Nwaite in the murder case with Suit No: O/4C/13, on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, the Presiding Judge, Justice T. O. Diai approve an application to adjourn hearing on the matter to May 08, 2013.
Justice T. O. Diai however called on counsels to make more witnesses available at the next Court sitting for speedy hearing in the matter, following complaints made by the Defense Counsel, Barr. O. W. Chibuogwu.
The witness, Chidiebere Nwaite, during examination by the Prosecuting Counsel told the court that at about 10:30 pm on the fateful day of the murder of late Felix Onyeka Nduka, he discovered a QLINK Motorcycle with Registration No: UT 215 NSK (Exhibit A) along a farm road at Aboh-Ogwashi and immediately alerted the Vigilante Chairman.
He added that the Vigilante Chairman ordered that the said motorcycle be moved away from the spot it was parked to his premises, pending the discovery of the real owner and later reported their findings to the Police on two different occasion.
Luck however ran out of the accused, Michael Albert when he appeared in the premises of the Vigilante Chairman the next day at about 07:00am, saying that the QLINK Motorcycle with Registration No: UT 215 NSK belong to him and be released to him.
But it was later discovered that the real owner of the same QLINK Motorcycle with Registration No: UT 215 NSK (Exhibit A) was the deceased, late Felix Onyeka Nduka.
Justice T. O. Diai adjourned hearing on the matter to May 08, 2013.
