An Igbosere High Court has sentenced a Togolese cook identifed as Sunday Adefonou Anani to life imprisonment for killing the Chief Executive Officer of Credit Switch Ltd, Ope Bademosi in his Parview residence on October 31st 2018.
Justice Mobolanle Okikiolu-Ighile convicted Anani following his plea of guilty to a one-count charge of voluntary manslaughter.
During the trial, Anani confessed to the court that he stabbed Chief Bademosi to death in his Ikoyi, Lagos home, while trying to rob him. He also confessed to the court that he was the person caught on Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) fleeing the scene of the crime, after the murder.
Anani was originally arraigned on a two-count charge of murder and armed robbery which could have fetched him a sentence of death by hanging on conviction, but he struck a plea bargain deal with the Lagos State Government soon after the trial commenced.
