*To die by hanging for stealing?That is a little too harsh!!!


  1. It's not just for stealing, Stella, it is because it was an armed robbery. If there had been no gun present it would have been a lighter charge. Anytime a gun is involved in a crime it will invoke a higher penalty, in this case, death.

    1. You are right but since no live was lost in the operation, imprisonment would have been better. Not all armed cases have been sentence to death in the country.

  2. Stella that's not just stealing ,they are armed.

  3. Stella it’s not harsh oh. They stole at gun point meaning they were armed and anything could have happened, armed robbery attracts the death penalty.

  4. No mercy for armed robbers. When they enter a residential area, they sometimes go from house to house. I will never forget the cries and screams from my neighbors house. Lock them up and throw the keys away.
    Wicked souls.

  5. I just wish same penalty will be melt out to our politicians

  6. Stella not for stealing.They were armed with firearms...its armed robbery for the fact that they were armed it suffices...

  7. No mercy for armed robbers abeg, those people n kidnappers deserve same fate.

  8. Stella that's the penalty for armed robbery. Provided you were armed you will get a death penalty

  9. Our laws need to be revised. All these brown envelope Judges, like say them never do anything wrong before. Sentencing 5 people to death!!! Una no dey fear?! Life that you can't create. Punish them, rehabilitate them but respect the sanctity of life. Na tif dem tif, dem no kee pesin. Yes, that's correct even though they had guns on them .
