NURTW Chairman Collapses As Court Sentences Him To Death By Hanging For Killing Policeman

An Ikeja High Court, on Wednesday sentenced Saheed Arogundade, Chairman, National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Boundary/Aiyetoro Unit, Lagos State to death for the murder of a 32-year-old policeman, Gbenga Oladipupo.






Justice Olabisi Akinlade passed the sentence after a three-hour judgment which started at 2.35p.m. The judge held that the prosecution was able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Arogundade murdered the policeman, NAN reports.

Before delivering the judgment, for security reasons and to avoid disruption of proceedings, the judge ordered that the courtroom should be locked and the keys kept in her possession.

“I therefore pronounce the first defendant guilty as charged on the counts of conspiracy to commit murder and murder. I hereby pronounce the sentence of the court upon you Saheed Arogundade – that you be hanged from the neck until you are dead. May God have mercy upon your soul,” Akinlade said.

On hearing the sentence, Arogundade collapsed in the dock while his relatives wailed in the courtroom gallery.

    1. Learn to write with sense.
      Calling a practice nonsense with no reason is senseless.
      Table your case like someone who weren't to school.
      Not just jumping up and down condemning it without reason

    5. Thanks Sharon for understanding my point.killing someone because they killed,just bring more death. There are more punishment worse than death. sentencing someone to death is not the answer.

    6. Have you come across that word?- He that killeth with the sword shall die by the sword.
      Where there's no rule iniquity abounds. Emotional sentiment cannot be applied in all cases.

    7. It is the best deterrent. People will go on a killing spree once they know their lives will be intact.

  18. The NURTW and its legion of thugs, area boys, miscreants and touts have become terrorists in Lagos state making commuting a traumatizing and dehumanizing experience for commuters on a daily basis. It is very disheartening that this APC government and relevant government agencies work hand in glove with these lawless criminals to the detriment of law abiding citizens just because of the millions of naira of free money they extort on a daily basis at motor garages and bus stops. They arbitrarily fix exorbitant bus fares which they double or triple it at will, they impose and collect outrageous exorbitant illegal levies from bus drivers, they contribute nothing to road safety nor improve road infrastructure in anyway. As long as they "settle" the relevant government officials, government looks the other way while they extort the ordinary people. Its a big shame that this illegality is allowed to continue for this long and that a government elected by the people has become a major beneficiary of the exploitation of the same people it is elected to
    protect and serve. We need a complete change of guard in Lagos to put a permanent stop to this nonsense.

  19. I empathize with Saheed but he should have thought of the consequences of his action on the day the Police Man, was killed. Nigeria is a country where some people feel they can do anything and get away with it but slowly and steadily things and times are changing. You do the crime, you bear the consequences. May the soul of the policeman rest on.
