A Nigerian man identified as David Olugboyega, was yesterday, Dec. 3, sentenced to death by hanging for armed robbery involving N14,570 by an Ado-Ekiti High Court…
Justice John Adeyeye, while delivering his judgement had this to say:
“An accused may be convicted on his own confession alone as long as the court was satisfied. Based on the confessional statement of the accused, the court found him guilty as charged. Besides, the prosecution has also proved his case beyond reasonable doubt by providing seven witnesses.
“The accused is hereby sentenced to death by hanging. This will serve as deterrent to others in the society. May God have mercy on your soul.”
The accused was said to have been armed with dangerous weapons including gun and cutlass, as he robbed three people of N14,570.
Olugboyega, who defended himself without a Lawyer, pleaded guilty to the charge and also confessed to have been involved in series of robberies.
