One of the chiefs who testified before the court said, “we were at the palace on that day for Onise in Council meeting, around 7am; before the commencement of the meeting, Omoniyi Ademola Stephen entered the palace and sat on Kabiyesi’s seat, but the chiefs frowned at his action and drove him away.

“After the meeting, late Onise, in company of his male clerk, were trekking back to the main palace, Ademola came out of his hiding and attacked Kabiyesi with a knife and stabbed him to death. Before that day, he had been parading himself as the king of the town,” he concluded.

To proof his case, the state counsel, Adegboyega Morakinyo, called five witnesses and tendered a medical report, statements of the convict, knife and rope, among others, as exhibits, while the convict spoke, in his own defence, through his counsel, Tope Amr Salami, and called no witness.

In his judgment, Justice Olukayode Ogundana dispelled the notion that the defendant is insane, “consequently, the defendant, Omoniyi Ademola Stephen, is, hereby, sentenced to death and shall be hanged until he breathes his last. May the good Lord have mercy upon his soul.”
