22-year-old man to die by hanging for robbery

Ekiti State High Court in Ado-Ekiti has sentenced one 22-year-old Kehinde Olajide to death by hanging for armed robbery.

Three others linked to the crime; Kareem Azeez, 24, Bamisile Lateef, 28, and Adebayo Basiru, 25, were set free by the court.

Justice Lekan Ogunmoye, in his ruling yesterday, said that the prosecution had proved ingredients of armed robbery against the first convict without any reasonable doubt.
