Court Sentences Two brothers to death by hanging for stealing phones in Ondo
An Ondo state court has sentenced two brothers, Isaac Sunday and Isaac Lucky and their accomplice, Ovie Nana Friday, to death by hanging.
In December 2013, the convicts reportedly used a firearm to steal phones, cash, motorcycles and other valuables from residents of Bolorunduro in Ondo state.
The prosecution team, led by Chief Legal Officer in the Ondo State Ministry of Justice, Olusegun Akeredolu, called in four witnesses and tendered confessional statements of the accused which were admitted.
The defendants represented by Samson Iluyemi testified for themselves but tendered no exhibit.
Yesterday, Thursday March 25, the judge who proceeded over the trial, Justice Yemi Fasanmi, said the prosecution team proved its case beyond reasonable doubts, which led to the two brothers and their accomplice to death by hanging.
