An octogenarian, Mr Oluwafemi Fagbemi, and three others; Tobi Ojo, Famutuwa Femi and Tope Olatunji  were on Tuesday sentenced to death for murder by an Osun State High Court presided over by Justice Kudirat Akano.

The convicts were charged with two count charge  of Conspiracy and murder contrary to sections 324 and 319 of the criminal Code Cap. 34 Volume 2 Laws of Osun State of Nigeria 2002.

The prosecuting  counsel from State of Osun Ministry of Justice,  Mr. Abiodun Badiora told the court that the convicts committed the crimes  on 13th of April, 2012 as the convicts conspired to kill one Jacob Ajayi for money ritual.

The headless  body of the deceased was recovered from the septic tank (soak away pit) while his genitals and part of his leg had been removed.

Counsel to the convicts A.O Oluwole  pleaded with the Judge to temper justice with mercy.

Justice Akano found them guilty on two counts preferred against them and sentenced them accordingly as count one (1) conspiracy attracts fourteen years imprisonment  for each of them  and sentenced them to death by hanging for murder.
