He is charged with an attempted felony, conspiracy, unlawful interference with Adegoke’s corpse, tampering with the hotel’s receipt and CCTV camera with the intent to destroy evidence that would prove that the victim visited the hotel, among others.
Adedoyin and six others arrested in connection with the death of Timothy Adegoke had been arraigned and remanded till Monday for ruling on their bail applications.
