An Ekiti State High Court in Ado Ekiti has sentenced 18-year-old Tajudeen Ogunleye and 21-year-old Tosin Oluwafemi, to death by hanging for murder, conspiracy and unlawful possession of a human skull.
The defendants were accused of committing the crimes on February 14, 2017, at Ifaki Ekiti in the Ido/Osi Local Government Area of the state by conspiring to murder one Joshua Ojo contrary to sections 516, 316, 319 and 329(a) of the Criminal Code, Cap C16, Laws of Ekiti State, 2012.

In her judgment, Justice Oluwatoyin Abodunde sentenced each of them to death for the offence of murder; seven years’ imprisonment for conspiracy; and five years for unlawful possession of the human skull.
