An Abeokuta High Court on Wednesday sentenced a 39-year-old mechanic, Musiliu Owolabi, to death by hanging for killing his lover, Miss Afusat Idowu.

Owolabi, who was arraigned on November 12, 2019, was convicted on one count of murder.

The Chief Judge of Ogun State, Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu, while delivering her judgment, submitted that the prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubts that Owolabi was guilty of the offence charged. She subsequently convicted him.

According to Justice Dipeolu, the offence committed contravened the provisions of section 319 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun State, 2006 adding that the evidence presented by the prosecution was tenable and therefore, sentenced Owolabi to death by hanging.

In his submission earlier, the state prosecution counsel, Mr James Mafe, Director of legal Drafting, Planning Research and Statistics in the state, said the convict committed the offence on Feb.1, 2018, at Camp area in Abeokuta.

Mafe had told the court that the convict took his lover to a hotel for pleasure after a while she complained of stomachache and later started foaming from her mouth.

Mafe added: “The convict took her to his vehicle, on his way he noticed she was dead, and secretly took the deceased to an uncompleted building, dug a shallow grave and buried her without disclosing to anybody.

“The convict was arrested when the younger brother of the deceased went to the police station to complain that his sister who told him she was going for a naming ceremony at Bode Olude area never returned.

“Upon police investigation, with the help of tracking the deceased phone, it was discovered that the convict was the last person that spoke with the deceased.
