Man Sentenced To Death By Hanging For Killing Wife’s Suspected Lover
A man identified as Adelake Bara has been sentenced to death by hanging by an Aiyetoro High Court in Ogun state for shooting dead one Olaleye Oke, whom he accused of having affairs with one of his three wives
The court convicted Bara on a one-count charge of murder on Monday.
Justice Patricia Oduniyi who delivered the judgement held that it was proven beyond reasonable doubt that Bara was guilty of the charge, stressing that the offence contravened the Criminal Code of Ogun.
Earlier, the state prosecuting counsel, Miss T.O Adeyemi, revealed that the convict committed the offence on May 1, 2018, at Afodan Farm Settlement, Ijoun, in the Aiyetoro area of Ogun.
Adeyemi said the deceased was on his farm when Bara met him and accused him of having a love affair with one of his wives.
“Bara who has three wives brought out a gun and shot Oke in the head, while the latter was trying to explain that he had no affair with any of Bara’s wives as accused,’’ she said.
