A High Court in Ibadan, Oyo State has sentenced Moshood Owolabi, a 200-level student of Lead City University, Ibadan, to die by hanging for stabbing his fellow student to death.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Mr. Owolabi of the Physical and Health Education Department had caused the death of Mr. Seun Kolawole by stabbing him with a bottle.

In his judgment on Wednesday, Justice Adegboye Gbolagunte sentenced Mr. Owolabi to death by hanging having found him guilty of the murder charge before him.


The offence is punishable under Section 319 of the Criminal Code Cap. 38 Vol. II Law of Oyo State 2000.

Justice Gbolagunte held that prosecuting counsel A. Olawale, had proved the case beyond reasonable doubt, with overwhelming evidence which showed that the accused committed the offence as charged.

Advising parents to always monitor their children to prevent them from misbehaving, the presiding judge ruled that the accused be sentenced to death by hanging to serve as deterrent to others.

Presenting his case earlier, Mr. Olawale told court that the convict stabbed his victim with a broken bottle in the neck after a misunderstanding between both of them.

He maintained that the stabbing incident, which happened on January 12, 2014 at toll-gate area of Ibadan, resulted in the death of Mr. Kolawole.
