A 25-year-old man, David Seimiyengha has been sentenced to death by an Ondo State High Court sitting in Akure, the state capital, for committing kidnapping and murder.
The convict and two other accomplices, Fikesei Inuesokan and Bekewei Francis, were arrested by men of the Ondo State Police Command in 2017 for killing one Olumide Odimayo at Igbotu, in Ese-Odo Local Government Area of Ondo State.
Until his murder, Odimayo was a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in the local government. The defendants were said to have kidnapped and murdered Odimayo, which informed their arrest by the Police. They were also charged to court thereafter.
