An Ondo State High Court sitting in Akure has
sentenced one Chukwudi Onweniwe to death by
hanging for killing his girlfriend, Nifemi

The convict was arrested by the men of the
Ondo State Police Command after killing the
deceased, who was a student of the Rufus Giwa
Polytechnic, Owo, in February 2017 at Ogbese
in the Akure North Local Government Area of
the state.

Before the killing, Onweniwe was said to have
abducted the deceased and taken her to a farm
near the community, where he raped her, after
which he strangled her to death.

When the trial began in May 2017, the convict
was arraigned before the court on four counts
of action endangering life, kidnapping, rape
and murder.

After examining all the facts of the case, the
court held that on three of the counts, the
prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable
doubt except for the third count of rape,
which the prosecution did not provide the
evidence against the convict
While delivering his judgement, the trial judge,
Justice Samuel Bola, said the autopsy that was
conducted on the deceased showed the
abnormal state of her neck and the fracture of
her skull.

He added that the autopsy also indicated that
the deceased had been attacked with an object
with a blunt edge, which led to her death.
The judge found Onweniwe guilty as charged
on three counts and sentenced him

On the count of kidnapping, the court
sentenced Onweniwe to life imprisonment,
while on the count of strangulating to death,
the convict was sentenced to death by hanging;
and on murder, he was also sentenced to death
by hanging.
