Driver Bags Death Sentence For Murder


A High Court sitting in Ondo State has sentenced a man, Akinyemi Babatunde, to death after he was found guilty of armed robbery and killing his boss, Faith Omotayo.

The convict reportedly tied his boss to a plastic chair at her house on CAC Street, Isanlu, Isuada in Owo Local Government Area of the state.

The convict, who was a driver to the victim, was arrested by officers attached to the Ondo State Police Command in December 2012.

Babatunde was said to have made away with the deceased’s Toyota Camry car; a laptop computer, two mobile phones and a power bank.

In his ruling, Justice Yemi Fasanmi said that the prosecution counsel, Wale Bamisile, had proven beyond reasonable doubt that Babatunde was guilty of the crime, thus the verdict by the court.
