Two years after he killed his undergraduate girlfriend, an Akure High Court yesterday sentenced a man, Chukwudi Onweniwe, to death by hanging.
Onweniwe had strangled his girlfriend, Nifemi Adeyeye, an HND student of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic to death in Owo, Ondo State.
The convict was charged on four-count charge bordering on endangering life, abduction, rape and murder.
The convict abducted Nifemi and took her to a farm near Alayere, Ogbese, raped her and then snuffed life out of her by choking and strangulating her to death.
Nifemi’s mother, who testified before the court, said her daughter had told her she was going to visit her friend on the day she went missing.

She said that she did not know the convict though he was said to be her daughter’s boyfriend.

Two motorcyclists who saw the duo together on the fateful day also testified in the case and one of them told the court that he carried them to a spot in town.

The judge said the convict had confessed to the officers of the squad according to the testimony of one Ayoola Famoriyo and had taken his team to the spot where he hid the corpse of the deceased
The witness said Onweniwe had pointed to the spot where he kept Nifemi’s body and it was taken to the mortuary while the stone found near her head with which he had bashed in her skull was taken to the police station as an exhibit.

When the defence opened its case, the father of the convict, Nwosu Onweniwe, had told the court that the deceased was his son’s girlfriend who had been very helpful to him.
He said the deceased used to go with him to the farm and often washed his clothes..
