The fourth accused person fought tirelessly  in the witness box on Monday to clear his name of murder.

Ezike Nonso Ifechukwu denied knowledge that the phone he sold to his course mate belonged to the deceased.

He told Justice Olabisi Akinlade that the blackberry phone was given to him for repair by the second accused person, who happens to be his brother who claimed that the phone belongs to the first accused person, who is his uncle.

Nonso who described himself as a phone seller, added that since his brother could not pay for the repairs, he authorised him to sell the phone. He claimed to have sold the phone for sixty-eight thousand naira.

But the Director of Public Prosecution, idowu Alakija described the testimony of the suspect as an afterthought, noting that it contradicts an earlier statement he made to the police.

The suspects, Okwumo Nwabufo, Olisaloka Ezike, Orji Osita and Nonso Ezike Ifechukwu  are expected back in court on April the 11th.
