Metro 25-Year-Old Man Sentenced to Death by Hanging for Stealing Phones, Wristwatches



A convicted armed robber, Rasak Ogedengbe, 25, has been sentenced to death by hanging for stealing money, wristwatches and phones from one Mr. Chukwukekwu at a Church in Ejigbo.

The victim had gone to report at Ejigbo police station when he saw Ogedenge in the police van after the suspect had already been arrested by the police.

The police searched the polythene bag with him and found some of the valuables stolen from the victim.


Ogedengbe did not produce any witness and also pleaded not guilty to the offence but the prosecution had called two witnesses to testify and all their evidence were taken by the court.

While delivering her judgment, the presiding judge, Hon.Justice Olabisi Akinlade said that Ogedengbe was accused of criminal conspiracy and armed robbery under Section 403 and 402 of the criminal code, law of Lagos State 2003.

She said that the prosecution has been able to prove the elements of armed robbery and conspiracy and therefore found Ogedengbe guilty of both offences.

He was therefore sentenced to death by hanging.

If this man is sentence to death by hanging because of money and wristwatch, wat will u now do to sambo dasuki, Nigeria is full of injustice I swear......
Unfortunately in Nigeria, the law only axes poor, helpless people. The most they can give Dasuki and his allies are jail terms which may not be more than 5 years or they may even enter a plea bargain. Shame on Nigeria's judiciary system [USERGROUP=15]@News Hub Team[/USERGROUP]
That is exactly wat they will do at the end of the day. I can only believe that their is change only if they eventually sentence dasuki to death by hanging otherwise, still on the same track.
