For stealing laptop @gunpoint, Judge says Izuma must die

A male hairdresser, Izuma Ajaere, 25, has been found guilty of stealing laptop with a Judge ruling he must die, reports ITRealms.

Justice Kudirat Jose of Ikeja High Court in Lagos, ruled Wednesday that for stealing a laptop and a mobile phone at gunpoint, Ajaere has been convicted.

ITRealms reports that Ajaere was found guilty as charged and ordered that to be hanging.
The Judge in her judgment noted that the evidence of Mr Uchenna Ukah, the victim was overwhelmingly convincing to nail Ajaere.

Ukah in his testimony was ‘clear and emphatic’ about the series of events of the armed robbery, and from his conduct, while giving evidence, the court found the complainant to be ‘cogent and believable.’

The prosecution led by Mrs A.B Awosika had told the court that the Ajaere committed the offences at 9.30pm on June 22, 2012, at No. 12, Vincent Eze, St., Ajao Estate, Lagos.

Awosika also said that the convict alongside an accomplice had accosted Ukah at gunpoint outside his flat.

“Ukah led them to his flat where they stole a laptop, a modem and a blackberry mobile phone.

“Ajaere and his accomplice after the robbery, locked the complainant in his apartment with the intent to also rob his neighbours.

“The complainant managed to get out of his apartment to raise an alarm leading to Ajaere and his accomplice being apprehended.

“Ukah’s laptop and modem were recovered from the duo, however, his blackberry mobile phone was never recovered,” Awosika said.

In giving evidence in his defence during the trial, Ajaere had denied robbing Ukah, claiming he only went to Ajao Estate for hairdressing work and was arrested during a police raid in the area.

The convict, also said, he was falsely charged with conspiracy and armed robbery by officials of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

But in delivering her judgement, Justice Jose reportedly declared that the evidence of the prosecution witness proved that the defendant was one of the armed robbers, “therefore, all the ingredients of the crime of armed robbery has been shown.

In addition, “The prosecution has proved the charge of conspiracy to commit armed robbery and armed robbery beyond a reasonable doubt.


“The defendant is hereby sentenced to death for conspiracy to commit armed robbery and sentenced to death for armed robbery. He is to be hanged by the neck till he is dead, may the Lord have mercy on his soul,” the judge said.
