A Lagos High Court sitting in Ikeja has sentenced one Muritala Salami to death for armed robbery.

Justice Adenike Coker found Salami guilty of a two-count charge of conspiracy and robbery on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.

The prosecuting counsel Jide Martins, a director with the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in Lagos State justice ministry said Salami and his gang conspired and robbed one Okocha Anthony Afiam of two phones and two wristwatches.
