#Nigeria: University Student To Die By Hanging
A Level 200 student of a South-Western university, Moshood Owolabi, is to die by hanging for stabbing his fellow student to death.
Owolabi, of the Physical and Health Education Department of the institution, caused the death of Kolawole by stabbing him with a bottle.
The judge said that the evidence before him showed that the accused committed the offence as charged. He ruled that the accused should be sentenced to death by hanging to serve as deterrent to others.
Gbolagunte advised parents to always monitor their children to prevent them from misbehaving.
Olawale had earlier told court that the convict stabbed Kolawole with a broken bottle in the neck, following a misunderstanding between him and the deceased. He said that the injury sustained as a result of the stabbing resulted in the death of Kolawole.
Olawale said that the incident happened on January 12, 2014 at toll-gate area of Ibadan. The offence is punishable under Section 319 of the Criminal Code Cap. 38 Vol. II Law of Oyo State, 2000.
