Man sentenced to death by hanging for killing colleague

Monday, Abbah, 24, was found guilty of killing his coworker, Mr. Rapheal Osugbe and was given the death by hanging penalty by the Abeokuta High Court.

Abbah was found guilty of one count of murder despite entering a not guilty plea.

In her ruling on Friday, Justice O.O. Stanley declared that the prosecution had proven its case beyond a reasonable doubt, finding Abbah guilty of the murder allegation.

She declared the prosecution’s case to be credible, leading her to find Abbah guilty and sentence him to hanging death.
“Monday Abbah, you are hereby sentenced to hang till you die. She prayed, “May God have mercy on you.”

She believed that since there was a physical altercation and the deceased was not carrying a potentially lethal weapon at the time, there was no justification for him stabbing his victim with a knife.

It’s terrible that this was brought on by rage. I believe this has taught us all something,” she remarked.

The defendant committed the crime on February 13, 2017, at Lexis Plastic Company, which is located near the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway, according to what the prosecution had told the court.

According to the prosecution, the deceased, Osugbe, was a truck driver, while the defendant, who was employed by Lexis Plastic Company, was a laborer.

“Mr. Rapheal Osugbe (dead), driving the company’s vehicle, sought to dump items on February 13, 2017, but as he was reversing, the truck mounted on some empty containers that were inside a bag that the defendant was organizing.

“Osugbe (dead) angrily emerged from his truck, grabbed onto the defendant, and slapped him, which resulted in a physical altercation. The defendant had taken one of the empty containers and thrown it at him.
“During that procedure, Osugbe was stabbed in the neck by Abbah, who was gripping a knife he uses to extract nylon from the plastic container, and blood began to flow.”
“The deceased was taken to the hospital right away, but sadly, a blood shortage caused him to pass away en route.” stated the prosecution.

According to the prosecution, the crime violated sections 316 and 319 of the Criminal Code, which are laws passed in Ogun in 2006 (NAN).
