The duo got the sentence after Justice Josiah Majebi found them guilty of cattle rustling and culpable homicide.

The accused were arraigned on a three-count charge of criminal conspiracy, armed robbery and culpable homicide, contrary to various sections of the Penal Code.

The prosecution had told the court that sometimes in January 2016, one Dauda Abdullahi made a report of a gruesome murder and theft of cows, belonging to one Haruna, in one of the farm centres in Okene.

He said that upon investigation, the accused persons were arrested at Ajase-Ipo in Kwara State, while their leader, Awaijo Wetti, escaped and was still at large.

The prosecution further submitted that the suspects, who had earlier pleaded not guilty to the charges, later pleaded guilty.

The judge sentenced them to 28 years each, on the first three count charges, and death by hanging on the fourth charge of culpable homicide.
