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, Omowunmi Adebayo, of N3,420 on April 25th 2009. According to the prosecuting counsel from the state ministry of justice, Elisabeth Alabi, the condemned suspect had attacked his victim at her house in Illesa armed with a knife at midnight on the day of the incident. Alabi told the court that the suspect was apprehended by some members of the Oodua Peoples Congress who kept vigil in the area.
During his trial, he was granted bail but was re-arrested after committing another offence which led to him being remanded in the Ilesa prison. She ruled that the offence ran foul of the law and punishable under Section 11(2)(A) CAPR II, Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 2004.
The presiding judge, Kudirat Akano, found the condemned suspect guilty and ordered that he be killed by hung despite pleas by the defence counsel, Tunde Adedokun, for the court to be lenient and merciful in its judgment.
No date has been fixed for execution of the judgement.
