Youth To Die By Hanging For Robbery.

Lady justice Lady Justice.
A Makurdi High Court on Tuesday sentenced, Jacob Atongo, a 100-level sociology student of Benue State University, to death by hanging for armed robbery. News Agency of Nigeria reports that Justice Adam Onum held that he was satisfied with the confession of the accused to the charges and therefore found him guilty. Onum sentenced the accused to death by hanging, insisting that the sentence prescribed under the law for the offence must be followed.
Atongo had allegedly conspired with two others to rob one Stephen Akuma of his Toyota Camry, and had also robbed  others at gun point on June 26, 2012. He also allegedly attacked Judges’ Quarters, Makurdi on July 3, 2012 and robbed no fewer than 15 people. The offences contravened the Robbery and Firearms Laws. The accused had pleaded not guilty to the charges and testified for himself along with one witness called by his counsel. Maybe this same measure should be meted out on the politicians and their ilk robbing and raping us blind in the Country.
