By Teide Emomotimi

Man identified as Adeleke Bara has been sentenced to death by hanging for killing one Olaleye Oke, which he allegedly accused of having secret affair with one of his three wives after which he shot him.

On Monday, June 20, 2022, Ayetoro High Court in Ogun Bara was convicted on a one-count charge of murder.

Justice Patricia Oduniyi, who delivered the judgement, Oke’s offence contravened the criminal code of Ogun State, adding that the prosecution proved its case beyond doubt that the suspect is guilty of the crime.

According to justice, Patricia Oduniyi ruled that Bara must die by hanging. In the just-concluded trial, Ogun prosecuting counsel T.O Adeyemi revealed that the convict committed the offence on May 1, 2018, at Afodan Farm settlement, Ijoun, in the Ayetoro area of the state.
