February 24, 2017

Seun Oladapo who murdered a human rights lawyer and social commentator, Kunle Fadipe was on Friday sentenced to death by hanging.

Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye of an Ikeja High Court found Oladapo guilty in all the five counts bordering on murder, armed robbery, assault, possession of dangerous weapons.

Oladapo who stood in the dock with the aid of crutches, was expressionless as the judge declared that he is to die by hanging.

“I hereby find the defendant guilty of all the counts, as the prosecution has proved beyond doubt its case against the defendant.

“The knife with which the murder was carried out is one of the most vicious and dangerous looking knives I have ever seen,” the Judge said.

The sad incident which led to the death of Barrister Fadipe happened on the 3rd of July 2014, when the deceased came back from work around 10pm at his Harmony Estate Duplex, Fagba.
