Justice Yusuf Adebayo of the Kwara State High Court has declared three persons innocent among the eight suspects standing trial for the offence of rape and murder of Olajide Blessing Omowumi, a 300 level student of the University of Ilorin.

In the three hours judgement handed down on Tuesday, the judge discharged and acquitted Abdullateef Abdulrahman, Daud Bashir Aderayo and Akande Taiye Oladoja on the basis that they are not found guilty of any of the charges against them.

Meanwhile, the other suspects who allegedly took principal roles in the rape and murder of the deceased will soon know their fate following the judgement that will later be delivered by the judge.
