12 Nigerians may face death penalty in Benin Republic

12 Nigerians Awaiting Execution In Benin

Twelve suspects of Nigerian origin, who robbed some bureau de change operators at Krake village, Seme Podge, in Republic of Benin, might get the death penalty.

The Controller General of police in Benin, Celestine Guidimey, who revealed this to PUNCH METRO said that some Beninese were killed during the robbery operation. “In my country, if anybody kills during or after a robbery operation, what he would get from the court.is the death penalty.”

Guidimey was in Lagos State to receive the robbers from the Lagos State police command. Policemen in the state apprehended the robbers in Nigeria after the operation in Benin Republic.

He told PUNCH METRO that the Beninese police would conduct further investigation to get those who collaborated with the suspects in Benin and then charged them to court.

“Our investigations will not take more than a month. We know that there are some of our citizens that aided the successful robbery operation. We hope to get them and charge them alongside their Nigerian collaborators. Anybody we find not guilty among the suspect here will be allowed to go. After that, they will be punished according to their role in the crime. But we are confident that those who robbed and killed our people will get the death penalty,” he said.

The police commissioner in Lagos State, Marvel Akpoyibo, said that the arrest and handing over of the suspected robbers showed that the police are the same everywhere. He added, “Lagos State policemen are not bothered that they are serving their punishment in Benin because that is where the crime took place,” he said.

The gang that told PUNCH METRO last week that they found the trade too lucrative to abandon it, landed in police net shortly after the raid on the bureau de change in Benin Republic.

They were arrested by the police in Lagos State after they had safely slipped into Nigeria following a robbery operation in Benin Republic.

Akpoyibo had said he had ordered all the routes leading from Benin Republic to Lagos be sealed up upon hearing of the robbery. He said, “I also deployed a combined team of operatives from Police Mobile Force, Anti-Terrorist Squad and the Marine police to provide reinforcement and back up for the policemen in Seme and Badagry divisions.

“They abandoned their jeep with registration number Lagos VC 01 MUS and escaped into the forest. We immediately cordoned off the forest for three days between August 31 and September 1. At the end, we got these 8 suspects.

“In addition, four AK 47 rifles, 99 live ammunition, N504, 430, and 1, 673, 000 CFA suspected to have been stolen from victims during the robbery operation were recovered.”

They should have a fair trial, and they be found guilty, then the law should take its course, I'm never happy when i see a fellow Nigerian in this kind of situation, but i will not condone stealing and killing people.. They say when you are in Rome behave like a Roman, I think they should have added, and when you fuck up in Rome, Be prepared to Face the Roman consequence.

PS: I think the word Bastard should the scratched out of the Dictionary.. its logically impossible for a Bastard to exist.

Is a big let down to this great Nation of ours that for our own citizens to got out there and rob in a very poor country like Benin, is a disgrace to us as a nation. Let them be serve right as their law pleases, they deserve to face the consequences,its just the that record can never be erase in the face of the Beninese.

Charity always begin from home that has been the saying and it shows if it's taken to seriously. Wherever we find ourselves in life first we are an ambassador of our family, our community or our villages or our town and our country and nobody dare soil it or the person found culpable would denounce by his/her family as a bastard child. In the present day that has been in the back burner and forgotten. We're now on our own to do as we wish or allowed the environment to take the good part of us. If we cannot change them then we joined them has been the new song of the present generation. Thereby our norm has been compromised for the sake of getting rich quick. Once they chose to go into another country to violate their laws let it be done unto them according to their law they has themselves to blame. At least they would be tried according to their laws be it fair or not they're the one that decide their fate in committing crime and if it's death penalty so be it since life were lost when they commit the act.
