A Rivers State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt on Monday sentenced one Sodienye Mbatumukeke to death after finding him guilty of two count charges of murder and armed robbery.

The accused who has been on trial since 2017 alongside alongside one Excel Naabee.

However, Nabee was acquitted and discharged by Justice Chigozie Igwe.

Police had alleged that the two accused conspired to kill one Chukwuma Eleje, a Dispatcher for Jumia, when he went to deliver items which included an as iPhone and other valuables ordered by Mbatumueke and his accomplice, Naabee in March 2017 in their house located at Ada George Road in Obio-Akpor local government area of Rivers.

According to the police, the two accused had strangled Eleje and dump his body in a septic tank.

His remains was later recovered by Homicide detectives of the Rivers State Police Command

The duo were first arraigned before a Chief Magistrate Court in Port Harcourt before the case was transferred to the State High Court.

Justice Chigozie Igwe had reserved judgment till today, 15 January 2021 after the lawyers to the accused made the final submission last December.

In his submission, Bonaventure Ugwu, the counsel to Mbatumueke had urged the court to discharge and acquit his client with claim that the prosecution did not prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.

Lucky Agor, the lawyer to Naabee, also asked the court to discharge and acquit his client, arguing that the prosecution failed to prove that Naabee was an accomplice in the murder of Eleje.

But in a counter submission, the Prosecution Counsel urged the Court to convict the accused as the 42 exhibits and 10 witnesses presented before the court proved their culpability in the murder of the Jumia agent.

He said the confessional statement of Mbatumeke proved that he tricked the deceased to come into the compound so he could kill him and collect his valuables.

How much is the iPhone 7 now?.. but here you are, about to be hanged for less than 80k.

You can only impress your circle, others dont know you and dont care either... while you have the liberty to seive that circle at your discretion for sane mental health devoid of unnecessary societal pressure..

The iPhone he wasted this guy for is probably not even trendy anymore now. May God help us curb the spirit of greed and covetousness.

The governor should sign the death warrants.
They killed a man hustling to take care of his family because of iPhone 7, today iPhone 7 is outdated and we have had iPhone 8, 9, 10, 11, 11 pro, 11 Pro Max all outdated and iPhone 12 was released last month.

I wonder how those criminals who pushed people out of vehicles because of Nokia 3310 years back will feel today when we have Android and Apple phones with various apps.
Don't kill yourself or another person over any luxury as everything is transient in life and like Ayi Kwei Armah titled his book 'the beautiful ones are not yet born'
