 A SENIOR Advocate of Nigeria, John Mbaduga, Monday, told a Lagos State High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square, presided over by Justice Yetunde Adesanya how two security guards, Kingsley Asuquo and Isaac Edet, allegedly stabbed him and stole his money.

  The guards are facing trial for  stabbing the senior lawyer multiple times after robbing him in 2018.

  Prof Mbaduga, led in evidence by the prosecutor, A.M. Adetokunbo,  said  that the defendants were security guards hired to protect the building where his law firm was located.

  He said  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 and shot him three times in the chest.

  “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.”

  I  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 said.

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

  “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.”
