The scheduled arraignment of 12 men accused of forging the title documents of a vast piece of land belonging to the registered trustees of the estate of the late Madam Efunroye Tinubu was yesterday stalled as the police did not produce them in court.
The accused are Buhari Oloto, Tomori Williams, Adeyemi Adewale, Jimoh Jafar, Kunle Olajide and Chief Edward Ajayi.
Others are Adejumo Tajudeen, Abeden Akinoki, Lukeman Bakari, Junaid Akeem, Ogundele Olatunji and Alawe Adeniyi.
The police had preferred a three-count charge of unlawful interference of property, forcible entry and forcible possession of land belonging to the estate of the late Madam Tinubu.
According to the prosecutor, the defendants unlawfully interfered with and forged the title documents of the expanse of land belonging to the registered trustees of the estate of the late Tinubu located at the Alaka area of Lagos.
The accused were scheduled to be arraigned before Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye of a Lagos High Court in Ikeja but the prosecutor, Emmanuel Jackson, told the court that they are in police custody in Abuja.
The judge, therefore, ordered the police to produce the defendants in court.
