EKO HOT BLOG reports that at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Asuquo and Edet are being tried by Justice Yetunde Adesanya of the Lagos State High Court.
Senior Advocate of Nigeria Prof. John Mbaduga has described how Kingsley Asuquo and Isaac Edet, two security guards, allegedly stabbed him and took his money.
They were charged with repeatedly stabbing the senior attorney after robbing him in 2018.
The defendants were security guards hired to protect the building where Mbaduga’s law office was located, the prosecutor, A.M. Adetokunbo, said during the trial on Monday.
He claimed that Asuquo came into his office on the third level of the building in the afternoon and pointed a revolver at him.
Mbaduga claimed that he was stabbed twice in the chest after being shot three times.
He said, “I begged them not to kill me so that I could give them money, but Asuquo insisted he was going to kill me, while Edet wanted to take the money. While I was lying in a pool of blood, I heard them discussing that they would take the money and also kill me.”
The lawyer said he told them he had the sum of N80,000 in his bag and over N1m cash in the office.
“Edet took the money; Asuquo removed my wristwatch and two of my phones. On the way to the office, I was in their middle and Asuquo was behind me. Asuquo said he didn’t want money, but wanted to kill me. He stabbed me at the back of my head and Edet stabbed me in my forehead. They started stabbing me everywhere,” he added.

The SAN said the two assailants appeared to be leaving before Asuquo rushed back and stabbed him in the stomach when he saw him still breathing.
He said, “When I came out with blood all over my face, I blocked a car that was passing by. The driver asked me what happened and I told him. He said he saw the two defendants running and he reversed to chase them. Another person came and used his car to take me to a hospital.”
Justice Adesanya adjourned the case till June 22 and 23 for continuation of trial.
