An Ondo State High Court sitting in Akure has sentenced 2 persons, Ita Enang & Olayemi Bamitale, to death by hanging, for killing a former Vice Chancellor of Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA), Prof. Albert Ilemobade in June 2015

Enang and Bamitale who were both domestic staff of the deceased, connived and had him killed over financial disagreement.
Ater killing him, they hid his body in his garage and escaped with his SUV and other valuables.

After one week of declaring him missing, family members found the late scholar’s decomposing body inside a sack. Both men were arrested while trying to sell off his SUV and other valuables they stole.

While delivering judgement, the presiding judge, Justice Olamide Williams, said the prosecuting counsel had proved beyond reasonable doubt that the accused persons killed the varsity don for their selfish gain. She thereafter sentenced them to death by hanging.
