Just In!!! Court Sentences Two Ex-Policemen To Death Over Armed Robbery





Federal Capital Territory High Court, Abuja, has sentenced two ex-policemen, Simeon Abraham and James Ejeh, to death for armed robbery.

They were arraigned on October 20, 2017, by the Police on two counts bordering on conspiracy and armed robbery.


Delivering by judgment on Thursday, Justice Peter Kekemeke, held that the prosecutor proved his case by calling four witnesses and their evidence corroborated the prosecutor’s case beyond any reasonable doubt.



Kekemeke held that the evidence before the court proved that, there was a robbery by the defendants and they were also on armed.

He added that there was an admission of guilt by the defendants and no evidence was stronger than their own admission.

The prosecution counsel, Kufureabasi Ebong, had told the court that on January 17, 2017, at about 1:00 am, the defendants (police officers), were dressed in their uniforms as they robbed one Christe Maker of her personal belongings while coming from the Abuja airport.

 
He also added that the offence contravened the provisions of sections 6 and 1(2) of the Robbery and Firearms (Special provisions) Act, 2004.
