JUSTICE IS SERVED - Kolade Arowolo Sentenced To Death For Killing His Banker Wife , 2 Years Ago.

                                                      Kolade and Late Wife, Omozele
Akolade Arowolo was accused of killing mutilating, stabbing and killing his wife and mother of his child. Until her death Titi was a banker and was with Syke Bank victoria island branch before she was transferred to the Marina office.   A Lagos High Court in Ikeja has sentenced to death Akolade Arowolo for the murder of his banker wife ( Read Here then see what the beast did to his wife Here, Titilayo, who he repeatedly stabbed to death with a knife at their residence in Isolo, Lagos, on June 24, 2011. Justice Lateefat Okunnu, in her judgment on Friday, held that even though there was no eyewitness to the incident, the circumstantial evidence adduced by the prosecution proved the murder charge against the convict beyond all reasonable doubts.

“I pronounce the defendant guilty as charged and accordingly sentenced to death,” the court held. The 32-year-old man, decked in white short sleeve shirt and black trousers, broke down in the dock and shouted, “Jesus, I did not do this,” shortly after the judge made her pronouncement. “Jesus, what will happen to Olamide (the daughter the deceased had for her)?” he asked rhetorically. The convict, who came into the courtroom with a Bible and a diary, began speaking in tongues as he was being led out of the court room. He held on to the Bible and the diary even after the prison warders handcuffed him and led him out of the courtroom.
The prison warders, who were assisted by the convict’s lawyer, Mr. Olanrewaju Ajanaku, had tough time dragging him to the temporary detention cell within the court premises. Intermittently, Akolade would bow down, while the warders tried to pull him up, and rise up to say, “in the name of Jesus, I’m going to come out. I will not be condemned because I did not do this”. Okunnu, in her two-and-a-half hour judgment, relied on the testimony of the forensic pathologist, Prof. John Obafunwa, who testified that there were at least 76 stab wounds found on the deceased’s body. Contrary to the convict’s claim during trial, Obafunwa had testified that the injuries found on the body of the deceased could not have been self-inflicted. Obafunwa had maintained that the injuries must have been caused by application of a sharp weapon on the body with “tremendous force”. The family has been through alot already, i feel sad for their daughter having to go through life without both her parents. Punch News and Sahara Reporters.
