NIGERIA: THREE DEATH SENTENCES UPHELD BY SUPREME COURT

July 6, 2018:

The Supreme Court upheld the judgment of the Court of Appeal, which handed down a death sentence on three members of the Bakassi Boys vigilante group in 2006.
The defendants/appellants;  Emmanuel Eze, Adiele Ndubuisi and Stanley Azuogu were convicted on charges of murder of two persons by the High Court of Abia State on February 26, 2006 and were consequently sentenced to death.
Not satisfied, the defendants separately approached the Court of Appeal to upturn the decision of the trial court.
However, the appellate court in its judgment delivered in May 2010, dismissed their appeals and affirmed the death penalty pronounced on them by the trial court.
The convicts had to appeal to the Supreme Court, praying that the murder charge on which they were convicted be substituted with manslaughter.
They had premised their appeal on the grounds that they were incited to kill the deceased by the Abia State Government.
But delivering judgment on the appeal, a five-man panel of the apex court found the appellants culpable of the murder charge and consequently affirmed the judgment of the lower court.
The panel led by Justice Dattijo Muhammad in a unanimous judgment, held that the three men truly committed murder and deserved the death penalty handed down on them.
