The accused persons are Olarenwaju Adewoye, Oluwasegun Raphael, Oluwasegun Joseph,  Fatoyinbo Augustine and Kunle Ajamu, all residents of Idofin Aiyekale in Oke-Ero Local Government Area of Kwara.

Chief Magistrate Bio Salihu, who presided over the matter, adjourned the case till July 3 for further mention.

The prosecutor, Insp Isaac Yakub, said that the accused persons trespassed into a burial ground belonging to Oke-Ero Community and exhumed human skulls and bones.
