Shock As Man Sentenced to Death by Hanging for Stealing N3,420 in Osun

A 40-year old man, Kayode Adedeji, has been sentenced to death by hanging by an Osun State High Court ‎in Osogbo, for robbing a woman of N3,420.‎

According to reports, Adedeji committed the crime on April 25, 2009.

The prosecuting counsel Elisabeth Alabi, said Adedeji robbed Omowumi Adebayo at Bolorunduro area in Ilesa of the money armed with a knife at midnight. He also had other dangerous weapons, she said.

Adedeji fled the scene of the robbery but was trailed and arrested by some members of the Oodua Peoples Congress in the area.

He pleaded not guilty to the one count charge of armed robbery when he was arraigned about eight years ago and was granted bail.

However, he abused the bail privilege by committing another offence which led to his remand in Ilesa prison.

The presiding judge, Kudirat Akano, found Mr. Adedeji guilty of the crime and convicted him.

The defence counsel, Tunde Adedokun, prayed the court to be lenient and merciful in her judgment, but she ordered that Mr. Adedeji be put to death by hanging.
