Why do you want to kill this boy?  You can have another way of punishing him. Have you also sentenced those stealing out money to death?

The judgement doesn't aggregate the crimes committed, how can you sentence someone to death for stealing phones and a car? He should not be sentence to death, what a useless justice system do we have in Nigeria. His sentencing shouldn't be more than 5 years at most.

Stealing without homicide shouldn't warrant a death sentence. Meanwhile, those in government stole, steals millions of Naira without sentences talk less of a death sentence. What an irony of Law and Justice.
