At the trial on Monday, Mbaduga, led in evidence by the prosecutor, A.M. Adetokunbo, told the court that the defendants were security guards hired to protect the building where his law firm was located.

According to him, the incident occurred in the afternoon when Asuquo entered and pointed a gun at him in his office on the third floor of the building.

Mbaduga said he was shot three times before he was stabbed twice in the chest.

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 revealed that the suspects appeared to be leaving when Asuquo rushed back and stabbed him in the stomach after he noticed he was still breathing.
