Feb 18, 2016 – 2 Armed Robbers Sentenced To Death By Hanging In Ikeja Lagos Nigeria

An Ikeja High Court on Wednesday sentenced two men — Seun Omoilodan and Gbenga Kayode — to death by hanging for armed robbery.

Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye handed down the judgment after finding the duo guilty of a three-count charge of conspiracy, armed robbery and attempted robbery.

She said: “The defendants are hereby convicted and sentenced to death by hanging for armed robbery.

“On the third count of attempted robbery, the defendants are sentenced to life imprisonment.”

Earlier, in his allocutus, counsel to Omoilodan and Kayode, Mr Damola Victor, had appealed to the court to temper justice with mercy.

“My Lord, kindly temper justice with mercy. The defendants are first time offenders and have shown remorse for their crimes.”

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the convicts committed the offences on November 2 and 9, 2011 at Ayangburen Road, Ikorodu, Lagos State.

The prosecution led by the Chief State Counsel, Mr Akin George, had told the court that the two men while armed with dangerous weapons robbed one Alhaji Jinadu of unspecified number of mobile phones and cash on November 2, 2011.

George said that on November 9, 2011 the convicts also robbed one Mr Rilwan Gbadamosi and his wife of cash and property.

  1. first time offenders indeed, if they were not caught ,they would have continued stealing and killing innocent people.But e be like say the judge take small ogogoro before passing judgement because how you go sentence person to life for attempted robbery.

    • ANYBODY HOLDING GUN THAT IS NEITHER A MILITARY PERSONNEL OR HUNTER IS A KILLER….. WELL, IF THEY KILL THEM IT’S A GREAT DEVELOPMENT TO NIGERIA AS A COUNTRY. I DON’T SEE ANY THING HASH ABOUT THAT JUDGEMENT THEY MIGHT HAVE KILLED MANY PEOPLE BEFORE THEY WHERE CAUGHT;. GOD PUNISH ALL OF YOU, ARM RUBBERS, DAY AND NIGHT SHALL WORK AGAINST YOUR FAVOUR YOU SHALL DIE OF SICKNESS AND PROBLEMS SO THAT OUR ROADS CAN BE SAFE TO DRIVE ON. ANIMALS.
