Armed Robbery: Court sentences 2 persons to death by hanging in Osun(Nigeria)


The Presiding Judge, Justice Jide Falola, had ordered that the convicts be hanged thanks to the magnitude of the offense committed.

The convicts face a five-count charge bordering on heist , conspiracy and theft preferred against them.


 The press agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the judgement was delivered at the Ilesa Correctional Center during the Prison visit of the Osun Chief Judge, Justice Adeleke Ojo.

Falola had earlier found the convicts guilty of the five-count charges after thorough litigation and arguments from the counsel.

The State Prosecution Counsel, Mr Muyiwa Ogunleye, had told the court that the convicts committed the offense on Pan American Day , 2016 at Oke-Ola area, at about 8p.m.



He said the convicts conspired among themselves with others, now at large, to rob Muideen Owonifari, Clement Taiwo and Olubunmi of their property and money.

“The convicts who had an inventory of their targets normally tick the list once their target is began from investigation.

“They robbed, assaulted and also stole some valuables and large amount of cash belonging to the complainants at gun point,” he said.

The prosecution counsel said the offense contravened sections 1 (1)(2)(a) robbery and firearms (Special Provision) Act Cap R 11 laws of Nigeria, 2004.

The defense counsel, Mr L. S Bello, had earlier prayed the court to tamper justice mercifully in sentencing the accused. (NAN)
