Appeal Court Upholds Death Sentence For Retired NNPC Staff, Godwin Elewana Who Killed His Daughter’s Boyfriend In 2015

Appeal Court Upholds Death Sentence For Retired NNPC Staff, Godwin Elewana Who Killed His Daughter’s Boyfriend In 2015

The Court of Appeal in Cross River State, has affirmed the death sentence by hanging of one Godwin Elewana, a retired staff of NNPC, for shooting to death, a 22-year old, Douglas Ojugbo, in 2015.

Elewana who shot and killed Douglas Ojugbo whom he suspected was
having an affair with his daughter, Mercy, on March 10, 2015, was
sentenced to death by hanging in a judgement that was passed on Wenesday
21st March, 2018 in the federal High Court.

He, however, approached the Court of Appeal in Calabar, where Hon
Justice Y. Nimpar, in his judgment, on Wednesday, upheld the decision of
the High Court.

When the initial judgment was passed in 2018, mother of the deceased, Maria Ojugbo, said, “I
thank God for doing what should be done. It is stated in the Bible that
anyone who kills by the sword, will die by the sword. Elewana had no
reason whatsoever to kill my son in such a manner and conceal the act by
burying him. It was Almighty God that gave approval for this
judgement.”
