Robbery Suspects Jump From Two-Story Courtroom In Ibadan

30 May

Reported by Ayooluwa Afolabi

Two robbery suspects in an attempt to escape following their arraignment at the Ibadan Magistrate Court in Iyaganku sustained severe bodily injuries.

The incident occurred when the suspects, both housed at the Agodi Correctional Centre since 2023, jumped from a two-story building in a bid to flee the court premises.

According to Vanguard, the suspects landed on hard concrete, resulting in life-threatening injuries.

Eyewitnesses at the scene described the fall as horrific, with one suspect reportedly breaking his skull upon impact.

This has raised serious concerns about his chances of survival.

A source who spoke with the platform said, “When the two of them jumped through the window in an attempt to escape, perhaps they didn’t know how high the court is. They landed heavily on the floor.

“One of them who was wearing a white vest had his head bleeding while the other suspect’s spinal cord was affected. They couldn’t stand up. Instead, they were writhing in pain.

“The court was about to adjourn the case when everyone in the courtroom heard a loud thud outside. But the prison officials who brought them to the court quickly ran downstairs to attend to them.

“They carried the one in the white vest into a waiting van. The two of them had handcuffs on them. It looked as if the suspects had planned it earlier because they jumped at different points.

“The court, though distracted a bit, then adjourned the case to July 8, 2024.”
