Two men bag death sentence for armed robbery The Informant247

Man, 20, sentences to death for armed robbery in Lagos

A 20-year-old man, Nojeem Badmos, on Monday sentenced to death by hanging for armed robbery at the Ikeja Special Offences Court headed by Justice Olubunmi Abike-Fadipe.

The Informant247 gathered that Badmos was arraigned on a two-count charge of conspiracy to commit robbery and armed robbery, preferred against him by the Lagos State Government.

The offence of conspiracy and armed robbery contravened the provisions of Sections 299 and 297 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.

It was learnt that when the matter came up on Monday for judgment, the state prosecuting counsel, Mrs Adebanke Ogunde, announced her appearance while Mr Ajibade Benson appeared for the defence.

Justice Abike-Fadipe, while delivering judgment, held that the prosecution was able to prove the ingredients of the two counts of conspiracy and armed robbery beyond a reasonable doubt.

She held that the evidence of the prosecution witness, Adetokunbo Solomon (victim), was proven cogent and true.

Justice Abike-Fadipe said, “Concerning the offence of conspiracy to commit robbery, I sentence you to 21 years jail term.

“In respect to armed robbery having been found guilty, you will be hanged on the neck until you are dead and may the Lord have mercy on you.”
