An Ilorin High Court has sentenced four persons to death by hanging for criminal conspiracy and armed robbery.

The condemned armed robbers are Ibrahim Olayiwola, Abdulwaheed Aliyu, Tunde Kareem and Omotayo Isah.

Shortly after the sentence was handed down by Justice S.T Umar, the convicts broke down in court.

They were charged for robbing the petroleum attendants of Rockfield
Petroleum Filling Station, Odota, Ilorin, in February 2011, contrary to
the provisions of Section 97 of the Penal Code and Section 1 (2) of the
Robbery and Firearms (Special provisions) Act, CAP R11 Laws of the
Federation of Nigeria 2004.

Delivering the judgment, Justice Umar said he agreed with the lead
prosecution counsel, M.A.I Akande, that the prosecution has proved its
case against the convicts beyond reasonable doubt.

The court further held that “there is sufficient evidence to
establish that the four convicts conspired among themselves and did rob
the petroleum attendants of Rockfield Petroleum Filling Station, Odota,
Ilorin on February 18, 2011, while armed with guns, contrary to the
provisions of Section 97 of the Penal Code and Section 1 (2) of the
Robbery and Firearms (Special provisions) Act, CAP R11 Laws of
Federation of Nigeria 2004.”

The convicts were accordingly sentenced to death by hanging.

Counsel to the first suspect, Rapheal Ashaolu, argued that Olayiwola
was not at the scene of the incident but was arrested as one of the
suspects.

However, Counsels to the second, third and fourth accused, Barr
Abdulhameed, Abdul Gegele and Kamaldeen Gambari, respectively, pleaded
the alibi, but the court rejected it on the ground that the [alibi of
the] police station was not part of the pleas.
