David Olugboyega, has been sentenced to death by hanging by an Ado Ekiti high court for armed robbery where N14,750 was stolen.
Vanguard newspaper reported that David, robbed three people of the said amount on March 20th, 2003 at Araromi Street, Ikere-Ekiti with the aid of a gun and cutlass.
Judge John Adeyeye delivering his ruling said:
An accused may be convicted on his own confession alone as long as the court is satisfied. Based on the confession statement of the accused, the court found him guilty as charged. Besides, the persecution has also proved his case beyond reasonable doubt by providing seven witnesses.
The accused is hereby sentenced to death by hanging. This will serve as deterrent to others in the society. May God have mercy on your soul.
Quite sad. We hope this really does serve as deterrent to armed robbers who are still out there.
