Jos court sentences 2 men to death by hanging for stealing motorcycle


A Jos High Court on Friday sentenced two men, Abdulahi Saidu and Mohammed Salihu, to death by hanging for robbing a man of his motorcycle and N20, 000 cash.

The Judge, Justice I.A. Ashom, handed down the sentence after finding the two guilty of the crime.
“Due to the evidence before this court presented by the prosecution and your admittance to committing the crime, the court has found you guilty.

“You are hereby sentenced to death by hanging for criminal conspiracy and robbery.

“Each of you shall be hanged by the neck till you are dead, may God have mercy on your souls,” he ruled.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the two men were first arraigned on Nov. 25, 2015, accused of criminal conspiracy and armed robbery.

The Police Prosecutor, Mr M.I. Mantu, had told court that the duo committed the crime on May 2, 2015, at Lashin Dungep Village, Qua-apan LGA in Plateau, when they attacked one Wilfred Mankat with a cutlass and other dangerous weapons.

Mantu said the accused persons beat up the victim and thereafter, dispossessed him of his motorcycle and N20, 000 cash.

The prosecutor said that the duo had told police in a confessional statement that they committed the crime.

The first accused in his statement, read by the prosecutor stated that they armed themselves with a cutlass and went to the victim’s house and found him sleeping.

Mantu said that the first accused, Saidu, in the statement said they woke him up with beatings and demanded for the key and particulars of his motorcycle after which they collected N20, 000 and zoomed off.

The prosecutor further quoted the accused as saying that the second accused took the motorcycle to his house but the victim and the police trailed the tyre marks, leading to their arrest.


He said that the offences contravened Sections 6(b) and 1(1&2) of the Robbery and Firearms Act, an offence punishable with death by hanging upon conviction.

  1. Hello,
    I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful
    to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex
    because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I
    wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in
    the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of,
    especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he
    dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
    When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a
    relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wantve him all to
    myself. That was when i read about Dr alexzander on how he help people in
    saving their relationship and i was really desperate for his help. There
    were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months
    right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When
    we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress
    on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things
    better he said he gave me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our
    relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they
    went bad really fast, and that why his back with is Ex. Because it at least
    took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and
    disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears
    running out of my eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in
    my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back
    to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didn't believe him because i
    thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr
    alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return.
    Truly my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and
    that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to
    love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till
    now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2
    month now since you caste that love spell for me and nothing have gone bad
    between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i
    have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving
    my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share
    my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope
    in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope
    and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his
    website address http://alexzanderhightemple-com.webs.com or contact him
    direct with his email address alexzanderhightemple@gmail.com. I thank you
    Dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every
    social media or place i may go to.
