Justice Adedotun Onibokun, while given the verdict on Wednesday found the husband and wife guilty of the charges preferred against them.

The prosecutor had told the court during the trial that Fatai strangulated the victim, while his wife smashed Taiwo’s head with a sledge hammer after which the couple removed the victim’s purse and stole N48,780.00.

The Principal State Counsel, Mr. Faremi Moses, brought four witnesses to court and presented a sledge hammer which the couple used in murdering the victim and other exhibits before the court to prove the case.

There was weeping and wailing inside the court as the judge delivered the verdict and policemen present had to order two aged men who were weeping out of the court room.



  1. Shina Ade, the security people should start monitoring you immediately, to make sure you don’t raise armed robbery gang because of your disdain for Buhari and APC. If you do, the hand of the law shall catch up with you and you will equally be hanged. An incorrigible being. Meanwhile let your relative armed robbery couple pay the supreme price and spend N48,000 in hell.
