Two Armed Robbers Sentenced To Death In Akwa Ibom by UDOKABESTLUV(m): 3:33pm On Jul 01, 2022
An Akwa Ibom State High Court sitting in Uyo, the state capital, on Thursday, sentenced two armed robbers, Donald John Obot, a 35-year-old barber and Blessing Christopher Utah, a 36-year-old ex-convict to death by hanging.

The duo was convicted for conspiring and robbing one Esther Victor Akpan of the sum of N110,000.

They were said to have carried out the operation at Abak road Uyo after their victim withdrew the said amount from her bank in December, 2018.

In their confessional statements, the convicts said they had robbed a man of five hundred thousand naira, another of two hundred thousand naira and a woman at IBB Avenue, of her one hundred and thirty one thousand naira.

The trial judge, Justice Okon Okon, while delivering the judgment, found Donald John Obot and Blessing Christopher Utah guilty of conspiracy and armed robbery.

The Court said, “It is bizarre and unfortunate that armed robbers abused the public transport system and converted their tricycles to perpetrate crime, leaving their innocent victims with harrowing experiences and tales of woes”.

Justice Okon held that the convicts confessed that their meeting point was Federal Secretariat, Uyo, before they proceeded to monitor banks and ATM points, looking for customers withdrawing money.

The leader of the gang and rider of the tricycle used in the operations, is said to have escaped and has not been found till today.

The Court said, “his days are numbered” advising him to use his lucky escape to mend his ways and lifestyle.

Justice Okon ordered that the two defendants should die by hanging and prayed God to have mercy upon their souls.

But wouldn't it be more beneficial harvesting the organs of these condemned men for those in need of them?

Not justifying crime though but You sentenced someone who stole 110k,
But someone who stole 180billion was granted bail?
What's the difference between an armed robber and somone that commits official fraud?

Nigeria of our dreams

They stole #110,000 naira without killing anyone, but someone currently in an hospital in france stole billions, diverted 10% tax returns of a state to his own personal purse, innocent youths were killed while protesting, yet he somehow managed to emerge as a party flagbearer for the nation's ruling party.

It will be more beneficial harvesting their organs before killing them.

I will have no problems if the Government decide to start harvesting their organs before they are killed.

But I don't see the State Governor giving the go ahead for them to be killed. They will rot in jail.

Good one.... But the real armless robbers are in offices everywhere been escorted and guarded by the best police officer and security men... What an irony of life... Nigeria has 3 separate laws... One for the poor, for the rich and also for the politicians...

In as much as the judgement was too hard on them but it will serve as a lesson to others.

Presently in Lagos One chance is now every where and they keep getting away with it. No week passes by without hearing someone around me entered a one chance bus.

The governor wouldn't sign the death warrant, it the same as life imprisonment. Rev. King has been on death row in Lagos for years now.

In as much crime is forbidden in our society, this sentence is wrong.
Before you quote me, I’m a lawyer.


The only crime that leads to death sentencing is “taking another’s life’ as stated in section 319 of criminal law (2004).
I understand this judgment was made in line with Lagos law, it’ll therefore be appealed and the highest they can get is life in prisonment, but the expected year for them to serve is not less than 14years.
