An Ondo State High Court has sentenced two siblings – identified as Issac Sunday and Isaac Lucky to death for armed robbery in Ondo town, Ondo State.
NEWSNAIJA learned that apart from the duo, the court also sentenced one Ovie Friday, to death for the same offense.
The convicts were said to have connived to rob the residents of the community, using guns and other weapons, during which they were arrested by the security agents and charged to court in 2014.
The trio was arraigned before the court on charges bothering on conspiracy and serial robberies.
During the court proceedings, the prosecution, led by the Chief Legal Officer in the Ondo State Ministry of Justice, known as Mr. Olusegun Akeredolu, called four witnesses and tendered confessional statements of the defendants which were admitted by the court.
The defendants represented by their counsel, Mr. Samson Iluyemi, gave evidence for themselves but brought forth no exhibit.
In his judgment, trial judge, Justice Yemi Fasanmi, said the prosecution has proven its case beyond all reasonable doubts and sentenced the defendants to death by hanging
