On the second application for the post mortem examination (autopsy) on the corpse of the late Michael Adiukwu, the Judge dismissed it as baseless and pointless wondering if the same ruling could be given in respect of the five Fulani men allegedly killed in their presence.

She, therefore, adjourned the case until the eight of next month while the defense counsel bared his mind on granting and non-granting of the applications.
