Two to die by hanging for Ekiti car robberyPublished Kindly Share This Story On Abiodun Nejo, Ado Ekiti An Ekiti State High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti has sentenced two middle-aged men to death by hanging for armed robbery. The condemned persons, Jamiu Idris and Ganiu Issah, faced two counts of conspiracy and armed robbery. Justice John Adeyeye, in his judgment on Thursday, found them guilty of carrying out a robbery activity while armed with guns and cutlasses. The court held that the prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt and consequently found them guilty as charged. The prosecutor from the state Ministry of Justice, Mrs Kemi Ajumobi, told the court that the convicts robbed one Mr Obanibi Adams of his Toyota Camry car with number plate LND 118 EA on November 16, 2016, on D5 Progress Street, off Poly Road, Ado Ekiti. Ajumobi said the convicts were labourers, who worked on Adams’ site. The prosecutor stated that the police tracked their phones, which led to their arrest and prosecution. In the course of the trial, the prosecutor called four witnesses to prove her case and tendered exhibits, including two guns, five live cartridges, phones and the car as well as the convicts’ confessional statements. But the defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges. The counsel for the defendants, Mr Chris Omokhafe, gave evidence in their defence. Copyright PUNCH. All rights reserved.
