Court Imposes Death Penalty On Businessman, Accomplice For Armed Robbery, Murder

The Osun State High Court in Osogbo on Thursday, sentenced  34-year-old businessman Kola Adeyemi and 36-year-old battery charger Wasiu Afolayan to death by hanging. 

The sentence was pronounced in connection with their involvement in an armed robbery and murder case that shocked the local community.

The prosecution, led by Bewaji Adeniji from the Ministry of Justice, presented a case against the two defendants. 

The charges included four counts of conspiracy, armed robbery, and unlawful possession of arms, all of which are punishable under section 3(1) of the Robbery and Firearms (Special Provisions) Act, Cap R.11, Laws of Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

Despite pleading not guilty, Adeyemi and Afolayan faced overwhelming evidence linking them to the heinous crimes.

 Adeniji’s compelling argument detailed how, on December 7th, 2018, near C.A.C No. 16, Oke-Onitea Area, Osogbo, the duo orchestrated a brazen robbery, terrorising the community and resulting in tragic loss of life.
