During trial, the prosecution told the court that the convicts, while armed with bottles, 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 Director of Public Prosecutions, Olayinka Adeyemi, said 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.
The prosecution presented three witnesses and five exhibits before the court.
Delivering her judgement, Justice Nicole-Clay held that the prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt and thereafter sentenced each of the three convicts to 21 years’ imprisonment. ,,
