Court sentences Rivers serial killer David-West to death by hanging

After about six months of trial, a High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Friday, sentenced Gracious David-West, a serial killer, to death by hanging.

Presiding Judge, Justice Adolphus Enebele, while delivering his judgement on Friday said the suspect was convicted of the murder of eleven young women and attempted murder of a prospective victim identified as Benita Etim in a hotel in 2019.

Justice Enebele stated that the prosecution team was able to convince the court that David-West actually killed all eleven women at various hotel rooms in Port Harcourt and other parts of the state.

The court however discharged and acquitted the second defendant in the case, Nimi ThankGod, who is facing one count of misconduct with the corpse of one of David-West’s victims.

The PUNCH had earlier reported that David-West, who was arrested and paraded by the police in September 2019, confessed to killing seven young women; one in Lagos State, one in Owerri, Imo State, and five others in Rivers State.

Counsel for David-West, Vincent Chukwu, in his plea of allocutus on behalf of his client, pleaded for leniency on the grounds that his client is a father of three children.

However, the state prosecuting counsel led by Chidi Ekeh, said the 1st defendant (David-West) didn’t deserve any leniency and urged the court to ensure justice in the matter.

Speaking with journalists outside the courtroom, Ekeh said the judgement would serve as a deterrent to other persons with such criminal, pointing out that the 2nd defendant was freed because it was difficult to prove to the court that the accused committed the crime.

According to Ekeh, “With respect to the 2nd defendant, she escaped by the whiskers, not that the offence with which she was charged was not committed.

“But it was difficult to determine who exactly did it as the witnesses who would have ordinarily provided that answer suddenly disappeared from the state until date.

“I am happy that this judgment was given. It would serve as a deterrent to all persons with such disposition to know that there are consequences.”

On his part, counsel for David-West, Vincent Chukwu, said he will appeal the judgment.

Arrrrrrrh

E get some people case, you don't need to prolong the courts case. if they are found guilty, do accordingly.

This a very good news. How can you kill people, my question is how does such people sleep? No conscious.

He that kill by the sword will surely die by the sword.

Ironically, this man's execution will never see the light of the day.

Not gonna be executed because in Nigeria, we play double standing role in judicial matters and in giving justice to the lowly placed and downtrodden individuals in our society.

Rev. King was sentenced to same death over 7 years ago, till date, he's yet to be executed. Clifford orji and Otokoto, who executed them?
I guess God almighty remains the perfect judge of all time. At His time, He'll call all and sundry for trial.

Remember this man might be working for some highly placed individuals and some demigods in our society, hence they might not let him go down this way.

Remember also that Nigeria at the moment has less than 5 hangmen in the country as we speak.... So, who will bell the cat?

Re: Gracious David-West Sentenced To Death By Hanging by emror4u: 9:03pm On Oct 09
One down.... those useless killers in uniform should be made to face same penalty

If an officer is made to pay the capital punishment for every extrajudicial killing carried out, this impunity will end overnight

Why kill him? This man needs help, killing him will lead to rise of 100s of David west again...

They shud have rehabilitated him

Re: Gracious David-West Sentenced To Death By Hanging by flemsy15(m): 9:04pm On Oct 09
In Nigeria, death sentences are d same as life imprisonment since they require the governor to sign which they don't normally do.
But nice and quick judgement all the same

Good! But if i should be the judge: I will just ask them to kill him by using step by step method. Starting by cutting off his right hand follow by right leg next by his right eye. Then start again by left hand also follow by his left eye. At this stage he won't know/see when the last operation will take on. By this time his dying already... So rest in advance to him!
