The prosecutor in the case, Matthew Ologbon, told the court presided over by K.A.Yahyah, that on May 23, 2015, at about 12 pm, the police found Idowu in a pool of blood in the residential area, after Abdullahi and his gang who are now at large, had tricked her from her residence to Fate Road, in the area, where they raped her to death.
