Justice Bayo Taiwo who gave the judgment on Monday said that the prosecuting counsel, Mrs Sandra Stella, had proved the allegation against the convict beyond all reasonable doubts.

The judge said the convict and others at large robbed Kamorudeen Adeyemi, Ibrahim Sariyu, Alhaji Alowonle Nurudeen and others on Dec.12, 2017, at Tose Moniya Ibukun Oluwa Zone II, Ibadan, with a den gun.

He said that there was overwhelming and direct evidence that showed that the convict robbed the victims and shot at Nurudeen.

‘I hereby find the convict guilty as charged and sentence him to death by hanging,” the judge said.

The Prosecuting counsel had told the court that the convict and others at large frequently robbed the residents of Tose Moniya Zone II before he was caught in 2017.

Stella, a Deputy Director at the Oyo State Ministry of Justice, said the convict while armed with a gun, robbed the victims of their belongings, including laptops, mobile phones, jewelry and cash.
