One Seidu Adeyemi to die by hanging for the murder of Miss Khadijat Oluboyo who was the daughter of a former deputy governor of Ondo State, Lasisi Oluboyo.

Seidu Adeyemi was handed this judgment on Wednesday by a High Court in Ikare-Akoko, headquarters of Akoko Northeast local government, Akure Ondo State.

Seidu Adeyemi was charged for killing his girlfriend, Khadijat Oluboyo, on July 2, 2018.

He consequently buried her inside his room at Aratusi, Oke-Aro area of Akure.

Khadijat, was a final year student of Adekunle Ajasin University in Akungba Akoko (AAUA) until her death
In his judgement, Justice Samuel Bola said the prosecutor and the state government’s counsel had proved beyond reasonable doubt that Adeyemi actually committed the offence he was charged for.

Adeyemi, a graduate of Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA), was arrested by the Ondo State Police Command in July, last year for killing the former deputy governor’s daughter for a money ritual purpose at his house in Akure and allegedly buried the deceased inside his room for six days.

Justice Bola held that by criminal law, the convict had committed a capital offence and he should die by hanging.

After the verdict, leader of the prosecution team and State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Kola Olawoye, expressed delight over the judgement.

He, however, described the circumstances leading to the death of the deceased as unfortunate.

Olawoye noted that the state government was interested in the case because of the circumstances leading to the death of Khadijat Oluboyo and the judgement would serve as a deterrent for other criminals.
According to him, “The state decided to take up the case in order to know what led to the death of the deceased, and we want the defendant to explain to the whole world the part he took in the killing of the lady if any, thank God the court had done justice to the case today”

The father of the deceased, Oluboyo had earlier told reporters when the incident happened that he would not be interested in pursuing litigation on the matter before the state government took up the issue and charged Adeyemi to court.
