Ekiti Court Sentence Two To Death For Murder
Two men, Michael Adams and Abass Mutiu, were on Monday, sentenced to death by an Ekiti State High Court sitting in Ado-Ekiti.
The trial judge, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, convicted the duo for committing armed robbery and murder on January 22, 2014 at Fiyinfolu Avenue, off Ilawe Road, Ado-Ekiti.
The two convicts reportedly robbed Arowosere Kabiru of N12,800 while armed with dangerous weapons like guns and cutlasses, and also murdered Ojo Adebola.
Justice Daramola held: “In this present case, it was ominous and brutal; it was not the machete wound that inflicted Ojo Adebola but pellets from the gunshot.
“I found the defendants guilty of armed robbery and murder as laid on the charge sheet. They will face the supreme punishment for the commission of the offence of armed robbery and murder.
“Therefore, the sentence of the Court upon you is that you be hanged by the neck until you be dead. May the Lord have mercy on your souls.”
