According to the presiding judge, Justice H. Saleeman, the convicts, Mr. Opeyemi Esan – who is Onimisi’s former driver – one Mr. Benjamin Musa and Mr. Oluwasegun Ajiboye, were convicted of robbery, punishable under Section 1 (2) Robbery and Firearms Act, Cap R 11, LFN 2004.

The Kwara State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Kamalden Ajibade, who led the prosecution, had told the court that the professor disengaged the service of Esan due to his unruly behaviour.

He further stated that Esan who was aggrieved with his dismissal went ahead to organised a robbery attack to retaliate the sack.

In his confessional statement, Esan admitted that he recruited Musa and Ajiboye  from Lagos State to deal with his former boss.

Ajibade said, “On September 10, 2016, at the Senior Staff Quarters, University of Ilorin, the accused, while armed with weapons, including guns and machetes, robbed Onimisi and his family of their property, including a car, handsets, jewellery, and other valuables.”
