An Ado-Ekiti High Court on Friday sentenced three men- Taiwo
Hassan, 39; Henry Okeke, 30; and Oladimeji Olanrewaju, 27 to death
by hanging for armed robbery.

Delivering the judgment, Justice Olusegun Ogunyemi, said the court
found the convicts guilty of the two-count charge of conspiracy
and armed robbery.
“I have carefully considered the evidences before this court by
the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), the prosecution and
the defence counsel.
“I hereby find the accused guilty of the charge of conspiracy and
armed robbery as charged and hereby convict them thereof,”
Ogunyemi said.

The prosecutor, Mr Oluwaseun Fasote, had earlier told the court
that the men committed the offence on Dec.7, 2010, on Ado-Afao
Road, Ekiti.

He said Hassan, Okeke and Olanrewaju robbed one Lateef Saka of
his cell-phone, N360 as well as a Toyota Hummer bus marked XQ
987 BDG while armed with a gun.

Fasote said the offences contravened sections 6(B) and 1(2)(a) of
the Robbery and Firearms (Special Provision) Act Cap R11 Volume
14, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

The first and third accused were represented by Mr Ebenezer
Adedeji while the second had Mr Tosin Babalola as counsel.
All the accused persons had earlier pleaded not guilty when the
charges were read to them.
