Court slams 21-year sentence on three men for robbery


Three men identified as Sheriff Emiloju, Aanu Moses and Farouq Atolagbe have been sentenced to 21-years in prison by a Lagos State High Court for robbery.

The trio were convicted on Thursday by Justice Modupe Nicole-Clay after they were all found guilty on four counts bordering on conspiracy and armed robbery by the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions.

The convicts robbed one Abass Bashiru and Olayinka Houka of their Blackberry Passport phone, Blackberry Q10 and a wallet containing N2,000 and a prayer cloth, the prosecutor told the court during the trial.

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Olayinka Adeyemi, said that the convicts, while also armed with bottles, robbed one Adewunmi Ogunleye of her bag containing N190,000, photocopies and original copies of her vehicle documents, an ATM card, a voter card and a Samsung phone, valued at N60,000, a phone charger and a power bank.
