A 200 level student of Lead City University, Ibadan, Moshood Owolabi, is to die by hanging for stabling his fellow student to death.
Delivering judgment on Wednesday, Justice Adegboye Gbolagunte of an Ibadan High Court sentenced Owolabi to death by hanging for causing the death of one Seun Kolawole, two years ago.
Owolabi, of the Physical and Health Education Department caused the death of Kolawole by stabbing him with a bottle. The judge said that the evidence before him showed that the accused committed the offence as charged.
He ruled that the accused should be sentenced to death by hanging to serve as deterrent to others. The convict stabbed Kolawole with a broken bottle in the neck, following a misunderstanding between him and the deceased, on Jan. 12, 2014 at toll-gate area of Ibadan.
