Couple to die by hanging for murder!


An Osun State High Court sitting in Ile Ife has sentenced a couple, Fatai Jimoh and his wife, Lateefat, to death by hanging for armed robbery and murder of one Mrs. Bukola Taiwo of Ikeketu, Ile Ife.

Justice Adedotun Onibokun, while delivering the judgment on Wednesday found the husband and wife guilty of the charges preferred against them.

The prosecutor had told the court during the trial that Fatai strangulated the victim, while his wife smashed Taiwo’s head with a sledge hammer after which the couple removed the victim’s purse and stole N48,780.00.

The Principal State Counsel, Mr. Faremi Moses, brought four witnesses to court and presented a sledge hammer which the couple used in murdering the victim and other exhibits before the court to prove the case.

There was weeping and wailing inside the court as the judge delivered the verdict and policemen present had to order two aged men who were weeping out of the court room.
