An Osun High Court has in Osogbo sentenced four persons to death for conspiracy and armed robbery.
The convicts, Joseph Moses, 24, Samuel Job, 19, Gideon Ode, 25, and Daniel Abraham, 24, were brought to the court on a four-count charge of armed robbery and conspiracy.
The prosecutor, Abdulrahman Temitope, had told the court that the convicts committed the offense on October 14, 2013 at about 8:00 p.m. along Kajola expressway in Osogbo.
Temitope said the convicts conspired among themselves to rob one Abubakar Rauf of his motorcycle with registration number BDG 896 QB.
“The suspects conspired to attack the complainant with a knife and dangerous weapons collecting his motorcycle.
“They injured the complainant and also carted away his Bajaj motorcycle to their house before they were apprehended,” the prosecutor said.
Mr. Temitope said the crime committed had been a serial occurrence within the vicinity which had led to the death and missing of some persons.
The prosecutor said the offences contravened Section 6 and is punishable under section 1 of the Robbery and Fire Arm (Special Provision) Cap R11, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.
Counsel to the accused, Jimmy Jones, however, pleaded with the judge to temper justice with mercy in her judgment.
Delivering judgment, Justice Olubunmi Ayoola sentenced the convicts to death due to the magnitude of their crime, adding that the prosecutor had proved his case beyond any reasonable doubt.
