Ondo govt’ll sign death sentences of murder convicts –Commissioner
  • Ex-deputy gov’s daughter’s killer sentence tops list
  • Conviction of my daughter’s killer has rekindled my hope –Oluboyo

 

 

Ondo State Government yesterday said it would sign the death sentences of convicted murder suspects in the state, including the one passed on Mr. Adeyemi Seidu, who killed Khadijat, the first daughter of former Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Alhaji Lasisi Oluboyo. The state’s Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adekola Olawoye (SAN), said the state would implement the sentence as the state had no plan to abolish death sentence. The disclosure emerged following renewed calls across the state for the state government to abolish such plans even as the government insisted that it had no plan to abolish the death sentence.

An Akure High Court had on Wednesday sentenced Seidu to death by hanging for killing Khadijat, who was strangulated to death by Seidu, who was her boyfriend. After strangulating her, Seidu buried her remains in a shallow grave in his room in Okearo area of Akure, the state capital.

The decomposing body of Khadijat, who until her death was a final year student of Adekunle Ajasin University in Akungba Akoko (AAUA) was found in Seidu’s room in June last year. Speaking on the death sentence issue, Olawoye said Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu would soon sign the death warrant of those who had been sentenced to death in the state. Olawoye argued that it was imperative for law to take its course, and that anybody who kills should also be killed. He said: “Life is not a property of anybody, nobody has the right to take the life of fellow men, except as allowed and permitted by the law. “Even in advanced countries where they advocate abolition of death penalty, they still execute people found guilty of murder. “Like the judgement we heard somebody killed his girlfriend and removed her body parts and buried her in his room.

“How do you expect us to abolish death sentence with that? This is the rule of law; no sentiment about it. “When a case of this nature gets to the Supreme Court and it is confirmed that such a person should be executed, then the aspect of the governor, who has the constitutional right to confirm and sign the death sentence, will come into play. “We have so many of them that have been convicted, but I want to assure you that my ministry will do things proactively to see that these convicts will be executed. Mr. Governor will sign their death warrant.” While commending the judgement of the high court, which sentenced the killer to death, Olawoye said it was” a victory for the rule of law.”

However, Oluboyo has said the death sentence passed on Seidu had rekindled his hope and that of his family members on the nation’s judiciary. Also, Oluboyo said the death sentence passed on the killer would serve as deterrence to other young men who are looking for money through dubious means. Although the former deputy governor said he did not participate in the trial of Adeyemi Seidu, he said the verdict gladdens his heart as the killer did not go scot-free after he killed Khadijat for money-making rituals. He said: “The judgementhighlights the fact that there is judiciary in the country. I made a pronouncement that what has happened has happened. I said I did not have interest in the prosecution. Despite the fact that I did not participate in the trial, the judiciary still did its job as expected. “This judgement will serve as deterrence to others. You cannot kill somebody and just go away free like that.

The boy thought he would go away with the murder and that was the reason he did everything to cover his track. “This will teach our ladies the lesson that whenever they are going out, they should let people know. It is because we knew on time the whereabouts of Khadijat that we were able to get her killer.

“Parents should monitor their children. If not that we monitored the movement of Khadijat, the guy would have got away with the murder. Khadijat left school on Thursday, I was able to know that she was not in the school on Friday. “I sent money to her account and she did not call to thank me as usual. That was how I became suspicious. “The guy knew that we were able to trace Khadijat to him and he became restless after we asked him about the movement of Khadijat. He told us that he saw Khadijat but that she had gone to Lagos. “Khadijat was not a wayward girl, we knew of her relationship with Adeyemi. It was because of this that led to his arrest and eventual conviction. I appreciate the journalists for the role they played in unravelling they death of Khadijat.”

Insecurity: Gov Sani Bello signs agreement with bandits
  • Pardons 13 detained crooks

Governor Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger State has pardoned and released 13 bandits who have been terrorising parts of the state saying “we entered into an understanding with them to end their activities”.

He said this on Saturday at the 2nd General Abdulsalami Abubakar Foundation Annual Peace Lecture that the bandits made their demands as Nigerians.

While delivering a lecture titled “Good Politics at the Service of Peace: The role of Eminent Persons in the Prevention and Management of Conflict in Nigeria” at the Legbo Kutigi International Conference Centre, Minna, the governor also blamed certain politicians for heightening tensions and insecurity in the country with their utterances and actions.

According to him: “We signed a peace pact with them (bandits) and there is no better day to enforce that peace than today being World’s Peace Day, and I am pleased to inform you that since we had the understanding, there has been peace in that part of the state.

“We have expended a lot of resources using military solutions but at the same time we have decided to go into dialogue. And we found out that the dialogue we engaged in is beginning to yield positive results in some parts of the state.”

The governor, while declaring that the World Peace Day is a better time to enter a peace pact, said: “In our last meeting, we had an agreement and we requested from them to stop their activities and they also requested from us to release some of their members that were presumed to be unlawfully detained as part of steps to resolve the menace and to get peace.

“They are here today, these are people who feel oppressed; they have not been captured in the federal and states’ budgets; these are people that their ways of living and survival have not received the desired attention; these are people that are aggrieved; these are people that have been attacked.

“They feel they have been forced into carrying weapons and other dangerous weapons. We opened dialogue with them to stop their activities within a certain district or a certain part of the state.”

He further disclosed that the bandits made their demands as Nigerians, adding that “they have their prices; they have their worries; they also want to live in the comfort of homes but they are forced to remain in the bush”.

Governor Sani Bello also condemned the support being given to the now proscribed Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) saying that such support was capable of disintegrating the country.
