NIGERIAN MAN TO DIE BY HANGING FOR STEALING N3,420 IN OSUN STATE

An Osun State High Court sitting in Osogbo on Wednesday sentenced a man, Kayode Adedeji, to death by hanging for robbing a woman of the sum of N3,420.

The prosecuting counsel from the state Ministry of Justice, Mrs. Elisabeth Alabi, informed the court that Adedeji, while armed with a knife, invaded the residence of one Omowunmi Adebayo at the Bolorunduro area in Ilesa around 1:30am and stole her N3,420.

According to Alabi, the accused person, who committed the armed robbery offence on April 25, 2009, was armed with other dangerous weapons during the midnight robbery.

The prosecutor explained further that 40-year-old Adedeji fled the scene of the robbery but was trailed and arrested by some members of the Oodua Peoples Congress in the area.

Adedeji was said to have pleaded not guilty to the one-count charge of armed robbery, when he was arraigned about eight years ago, and was granted bail.
