An Ekiti State High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti sentenced two men to death by handing for armed robbery.
This comes barely 24 hours after the same court sentenced two persons to death for stealing a man’s Toyota Camry car and the sum of N150,000.
The guilty men, 30-year-old Abiodun Olowosola, and a 35-year-old Sunday Olowosola, were found guilty of three counts of conspiracy, armed robbery and unlawful possession of firearms by the court.
Sentencing the men, Justice Adekunle Adeleye said that the prosecution established beyond reasonable doubt that the men were involved in armed robbery at Ikole Ekiti on December 29, 2017.
They were then sentenced to death by hanging on the first two counts while they bagged 10 years each on counts three.
