At the brief hearing of the case, Amos Adewale, the police officer investigating the case, informed the Chief Magistrate in charge of the case, Kehinde Durosaro-Tijani that based on legal advice from Department of Public Prosecution (DPP), the Magistrate’s court lacked the jurisdiction to hear the case and so the case should be transferred to the state High court.

The Chief Magistrate adjourned the case till March 1st and Yewande was taken back to Agodi prison where she has been locked up since the attack happened.
