The prosecutor for the case against the accused, Martins Omakor had informed the Court that 31-year old Ekwe Nwomah, 30-year old Okechukwu Mba and 28 year-old Christian Joseph on the 13th of July, 2007 committed series of armed robbery operations at Kwale junction, Ogwashi-Uku by invading the houses of persons and robbing them of monies and valuables while armed with guns.

Omakor further told the court that nemesis caught up with them when they ordered the occupants of one the houses they visited to open the door but unknown to the robbers, the occupant was a Police Inspector who opened fire at the robbers when they tried to force their way into his apartment. The pellets hit the 1st accused person, Ekwe Nwomah on the chest region and fell to the ground while the other robbers fled and abandoned him thinking he was dead.
