ROBBERY accused Adriu Tuilagi and four other men allegedly met in Maqbool Rd in Nadera in the lead up to what was going to be a home invasion robbery.

Interviewing officer Inspector Ifereimi Tauva read out the caution interview of Mr Tuilagi in the High Court in Suva yesterday.

According to the caution interview, the incident took place six years ago.

The court heard that according to Mr Tuilagi's interview statement, he boarded a bus and went to Nasole in Nasinu so he could use the short cut to go to Maqbool Rd.

When asked how he was aware of the short cut, he said in his statement to the interviewing officer that he had used it to go to Fatty's place to buy cigarettes.

The court heard that according to Mr Tuilagi, he and the four men scaled a cliff, crossed a cassava patch and then jumped a fence to enter into the compound of the complainant.
