Man sentenced to death for stealing phone
A High Court sitting in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has sentenced a 23-year-old man, Tope Abiodun, to death by hanging after he was found guilty of stealing an Android phone worth N87,000.
According to a concerned Nigerian who has decided to bring the case to public awareness, Don Capello, Abiodun, an indigene of Kabba, Kogi State, was sentenced to death by Justice Chizoba Orji of the Apo High Court, Abuja.
Capello is calling on well meaning Nigerians to put pressure on the authorities to consider the age of the young man and commute the sentence as his death would not serve any purpose rather than wasting a life that could be transformed.
