Justice Lekan Ogunmoye, in his judgement, said the charge of murder against the convict could not be substantiated, but a case of manslaughter was established. .

“Considering his age and the discretion of the court, he is hereby sentenced to 25 years imprisonment without an option of fine,” Ogunmoye ruled. .

The police prosecutor identified as Seyi Akomolafe, had told the court how an eyewitness alleged that the retired soldier and other vigilante members came to the deceased’s compound on the allegation that a thief was taking refuge in the house. .
