Murderers of ex-FUTA VC sentenced to death
An Ondo State High Court sitting in Akure has sentenced 2 persons, Ita Enang & Olayemi Bamitale, to death by hanging, for K!lling a former Vice Chancellor of Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA), Prof. Albert Ilemobade in June 2015
Enang and Bamitale who were both domestic staff of the deceased, connived and had him K!lled over financial disagreement.
After K!lling him, they hid his body in his garage and escaped with his SUV and other valuabL£s.
After one week of declaring him missing, family members found the late scholar’s decomposing body inside a sack. Both men were arrested while trying to sell off his SUV and other valuabL£s they stole.
While delivering judgement, the presiding judge, Justice Olamide Williams, said the prosecuting counsel had proved beyond reasonable doubt that the accused persons K!lled the varsity don for their selfish gain. She thereafter sentenced them to death by hanging.
