Cook who killed his boss, 2 months to her wedding, sentenced to death . Leudjou Koyemen Joel, the Cameroonian cook who stabbed his boss, Dayo Adeleke, to death on December 20, 2016, has been sentenced to death by a Lagos High Court sitting in Igbosere.
Joel stabbed Adeleke in the neck and heart because she allegedly refused to give him a two-week salary advance which he requested for earlier that morning.
The refugee from Cameroon was being rehabilitated in a church in Lagos, when Adeleke employed him on compassionate grounds, following a request by the pastor of her church.
However, she was murdered, seven months after employing him and two months to her wedding in February, 2017, having been engaged 3 months earlier. – #obyorijiblog
You are welcome to Nigeria where you innocence strictly depends on your connections and state of origin. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not here to vindicate a murderer, I’m saying that the fact that this case involves a foreigner killing a Nigerian could not even mean that it ends like this.
It is in this same county that is forming all lawful and upright, that a handful of Boko Haram members who have killed thousands of Northern Nigerians, they get into jail and after weeks they are released with the excuse that they have tuned a new leaf.
They to as far ass telling the nation that the Nigerian Army has absorbed these criminals. This country where people who assure called leaders make away with the money meant for the People of the country, and they publicly witch hunt the members of the opposition party while vividly protecting their own part member who has done worse.
If this guy’s has committed one murder and is about to killed, then on what ground did you forgive the group of people who killed thousands ? Why are the Boko Haram members being rehabilitated instead of facing the wrath of the law? Unbelievable..
