Convicted Armed Robber Segun Afolayan Sentenced To Death By Hanging In Ado Ekiti

An High Court in Ado Ekiti today sentenced one Afolayan Segun to death by hanging for robbery.

The 22-year- old bagged the sentence for the offence which he committed on Nov.10, 2014 at Ado central area of Ado Ekiti.

The convict had robbed one Ibrahim Samodun of a Bajaj motorcycle with registration number ADK 792 QC, cash of N60,500, a Bold 5 blackberry phone valued at N35,000 and a Nokia 2700 valued at N15,000.

Afolayan, who was armed with dangerous weapons such as axe and a gun, was also charged with stealing N50,000 from Layiwola Adeawo, another victim, on the same day.

Nemesis, however, caught up with the convict when the complainant, Samodun, discovered his motorcycle at Ijato area of Ado Ekiti.

Samodun reported the discovery to the police, leading to the arrest of the convict and an accomplice, Eniola Sunday, who escaped during a jail break in Ado Ekiti.‎

The State Counsel, Mrs Ibironke Odetola, called two witnesses, including the Investigating Police Officer, Insp Folashade Abe, who tendered some exhibits.

The exhibits included the confessional statements of the accused person, the statement of the complainant as well as the pictures of the accused taken with the stolen motorcycle.

The convict was represented by Mr Christopher Omokafe.

Justice Abiodun Adesodun held that the prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt and consequently sentenced the convict to death by hanging without an option of fine.

  1. This is so harsh, most of our crook politicians who have live above average life expectancy in Nigeria suppose to be the ones bagging this type of judgement, they are not only stealing,but killing at the same time.

  2. My dear Mon don’t bother yourself..heaven will same day judge each and everyone.the world can judge wrong but God will not…if supposing he has killed someone I could have said maybe he deserve the conclusion of the judge but I didn’t find that..how will someone believe that he or she have the right to put an end to another life time on earth for materal things just like that..Nigerians we really need to pray hard for our Nation because we rule by those whom wish to reduce us but not to construct us…I will never forget my grewing up in early 80s when children’s don’t know or carry guns neither have to robe..God we need your hands now to come heal this land once agn
