share on:

A student of the Delta State Polytechnic, Eguono Akpeghughu, has been sentenced to death by hanging for robbery.

The accused was arrested with the help of a passerby when the victim summoned up courage and grabbed the accused as he made to escape with his loot and raised alarm while his other gang members escaped.

He was found guilty of robbing his victim, George Ogbemudia, of cash and wrist watch worth N1,200, a necklace worth N7,000, Sony Ericsson handset worth N26,000 and N2,000 cash – totaling about N30,000.

Is the penalty too much?
