A prosecution witness, Mr. Solomon Opaluwa, on Friday told an FCT High Court that he saw the faces of the seven robbers who shot him and also killed his wife, NAN reports.
John Dikko, Pius Gabriel, Moses Ekainu and Ex CPL Abdullahi Isahaku, are standing trial on six counts bordering on armed robbery, homicide and conspiracy.
Opaluwa gave his testimony while being cross-examined by Mr. Andrew Eche, counsel for the defendants.
He said: “When the seven robbers came at night, I heard my dogs barking. So, I peeped through the window and saw strange men with guns.
“They fired shots. I was scared. I saw them clearly when they entered my apartment.
“When they came into my house, they did not instruct me to lay face down, I can identify each of them,” he said.
During Opaluwa’s evidence-in-chief, he narrated the scenario that took place on the night of his wife’s shooting death.
Justice Silvanus Oriji, who condoled the witness over his wife’s death, adjourned the case until June 3 for continuation of hearing.
NAN reports that the Prosecution Counsel, Friday Abah, alleged that the defendants, armed with AK-47, Marc 4 pistols, and locally fabricated rifles broke into the house of the witness and killed his wife, Ojoma; and another person, one Miss Ozorji Ofor, during the robbery.
The Police also said the defendants robbed Opaluwa and Tony Ndubisi of N370,000 and other valuables at the Sahara Super Cell Estate, Apo, Federal Capital Territory.
