Nyordee, however, freed Abiodun Yusuf, Joshua Ekpe, Abang Cyril and John Awuru, whose cases were not proved beyond all reasonable doubt by the prosecution.
Nyordee noted that the prosecution counsel was able to prove the involvement of the three persons in the video evidence presented to the court.
He declared: “I hereby sentence ex-sergeant Lucky Orji to death; I hereby also sentence Ikechukwu Louis Amadi (aka Kapoon) to death, and I hereby also sentenced David Chinasa Ogbada to death.”
He, however, added that the decision of the court would serve as a deterrent to those who take human lives without recourse to law, adding that human life should be protected.
