JudgeA middle-aged man identified as Tersoo Terna, has been sentenced to death by hanging by a High Court in Makurdi, the Benue State capital for stealing a Toyota Hilux Jeep belonging to a clergyman.

Terna was convicted on Thursday for criminal conspiracy and armed robbery.

The state prosecuting counsel, Mrs Jean Abba Ewurum had told the court that the convict and three others now at large, conspired, attacked and robbed one Reverend Peter Azuana of NKST at Mkar in Gboko Local Government Area of Benue State in May 2012.

During the trial, the complainant brought up six witnesses while the vehicle’s document  was tendered alongside a bag containing an expended bullet shell, four jean trousers, one singlet, a tooth brush and two identity cards; all recovered from the convict were submitted as exhibits.

In his defence, the convict also called on two witnesses; his wife and brother.

However, delivering judgment on the matter, the trial judge – Justice Adam Onum, said with all the evidences presented before him, a case of criminal conspiracy was established against the offender and accordingly sentenced him to death by hanging.

The judge refused to listen to the plea of leniency by  the counsel for the convict, Mrs  C K Umburga.
