Share This

OREROKPE An Orerokpe High court in Delta State has sentenced a 27-year-old clerical officer of the Delta State University, DELSU, Abraka, identified as David Wonder Erhirhie to death by hanging , after finding him guilty of killing a female student, Princess Chinoso Ijezie, who was seeking for admission at the University.

Prosecution led by Mr. Theophilous Omenuwoma had told the court that David Wonder, until the ugly incident, was a junior staff with DELSU, and was an admission racketeer who collected the sum of N155,000 from the deceased to assist her to secure admission into the University.

Reports say David Wonder, however, could not secure the admission for the deceased but in a criminal attempt to cover up the fraud, he lured the late Princes Chinoso Ijezie to his house under the pretence that he wanted to refund the said amount but instead, he murdered and secretly buried her in a shallow grave close to his house before the law of karma caught up with him.

Prosecution called six witnesses to prove its case while the accused testified by himself and called no witness. The court in convicting him stated: “The punishment for a crime of this magnitude is death penalty. This accused does not deserve less. You are therefore sentenced to death by hanging by the neck until you are dead”.
