It emerged that some state witnesses stayed at a guesthouse partly owned by his wife.

The case was further delayed for almost a year as Omotoso brought several appeals which were all dismissed.

Omotoso and his two co-accused are facing more than 90 charges including rape, human trafficking and racketeering.
