Octogenarian to hang for murder in Osun
« on: November 08, 2016, 07:48:19 PM »


Justice Kudrat Akano of Osun High Court on Tuesday in Osogbo sentenced an octogenarian, Oluwafemi Fagbemi, and three others to death by hanging for murder.

The other convicts sentenced were Tobi Ojo, Famutuwa Femi and Tope Olatunji.The prosecutor and state counsel in the Ministry of Justice, Mr. Abiodun Badiora, had told the court that the convicts on April 13, 2012, killed one Jacob Ajayi for money ritual in Ilesa town.

Badiora said the headless body of the victim was later recovered from a septic tank with his genitals and other parts of his body missing.

The prosecutor said the offence was contrary to sections 324 and 319 of the Criminal Code Cap. 34 Vol.II, Laws of Osun State of Nigeria, 2002.

The convicts were arraigned on a two-count of conspiracy and murder.

The counsel to the convicts, A.O Oluwole, however, pleaded with the judge to temper justice with mercy in her judgement.

Delivering judgement, Akano said the prosecutor had proved his case beyond any reasonable doubt.

Akano said the convicts were guilty of the two-count of conspiracy and murder preferred against them.

The judge consequently sentenced the convicts to 14 years imprisonment for conspiracy and death by hanging for murder.
