Well said, I dont know how people can claim to own and built Lagos and still wish evil for it, there was killing in Iba which is dominated by Ibos but the Osu were rejoicing. You can see another Ibo resident of this Ibafo area as well but her brothers are always rejoicing for any attack in SW. Pathetic

Vincent41:Some may see your laughter as sadistic joy but to me, you are being real and logical, since the army is war mongering on Niger Delta that is seeking justice while neglecting terrorists that are killing people for fun. UN should pull out and allow the dullard to set his priority right.

|Crime / Re: How An Oba Was Sentenced To Death For Ritual Killing In 1949. by freeDR(m): 8:52am|
After all the witnesses gave their evidence, the Crown counsel, Mr Crow submitted that the statements of the three major witnesses – Aina Ola, Owomobi and Ojo Olofa was sufficient for the conviction of Falayi, the herbalist. But the defence counsels argued that the three witnesses were accomplices and as such, their evidence needs to be corroborated. However, the trial judge, Justice Pollard ruled that he was satisfied that Aina Ola cannot be treated as an accomplice and therefore, her evidenced is enough corroboration of the concealment of Adediwura at Falayi’s house and subsequent transfer to the palace. Falayi was thereafter found guilty. Crown Counsel Crow also submitted that the confessional statement of Gabriel Olaberinjo and Ojo Olofa’s evidence was a complete corroboration of the second accused person’s guilt. However, his lawyer, Bode Thomas argued that his client made the statement under duress, and therefore could not be accepted as evidence. But Justice Pollard held otherwise. The judge said that he was satisfied that the accused evidence was made voluntarily and freely. He too was found guilty.
However, Daniel Ojo was acquitted for lack of substantial evidence against him. On Oba Adeniran, the Crown Counsel submitted that evidence showed that he not only had the intention to kill, but also participated in the ritual murder of baby Adediwura. He directed the court to the evidence of Ojo Olofa, and Owomobi. The prosecutor further urged the court to take into consideration the demeanor of the Oba which portrayed him as a person with a guilty mind. However, his lawyer, Chief Awolowo argued that the fact that the Oba assisted the parents of the deceased and the parents during the search for the baby is enough to clear him of guilt. Chief Awolowo maintained that as an Oba, there are some elements in the town that wanted to deal with him. The lawyer said all the evidence against his client was circumstantial. However Justice Pollard did not agree with the lawyer. He said that his evidence that some people in the town had vowed to implicate him in the murder was an afterthought that holds no water. The trial judge thereafter found him guilty, and sentenced him to death with the other accused persons.
The accused persons however appealed the decision of the trial court before the West African Court of Appeal (WACA) where the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Verity presided with two other justices. After listening to both sides, the appellate court found the following:
1) Although the disappearance of the child was reported to the Oba early in the afternoon, he as the head of the town did nothing until twilight;
2) Five days after the disappearance, the Oba sent for the constable to say he had information that the child will be found at the forest near CMS compound. 3
) Upon the arrest of Enoch Falayi, he ordered his release because he claimed that Falayi was his “doctor”.
4) The corps found the mutilated body exactly where the Oba said the police would found it. The court maintained that even though these findings were circumstantial,the statements of other accused persons, and the ones read to him by the police which he confirmed, have already proved his guilt. The court particularly quoted Gabriel Olaberinjo,s statement read to the Oba by Sergeant Agbabiaka which the Oba did not deny. The statement reads: “I was in the palace of Alaaye of Efon at night, I saw Enoch carry one girl under his gown into the palace. He placed the girl under the staircase in the palace… Enoch left to call Alaaye… Alaaye came and saw the girl. He said Enoch should do her as he said he would do her… He carried the cigarette tin(in which the eyes and tongue) to Oba Alaaye… The following night Oba Alaaye asked whether the corpse of the girl had been cleared….”

We come from different cultures. We still go semi unclad at my age ( early 20s) and that is very much celebrated in my culture. We even show breast and no one sees fault. So yes, family and location play much here.
