The young man who was earlier remanded in Akure prison has been served death sentence.

Prior to his sentence, the culprit admitted that he’s a Yahoo boy but he did not kill his girlfriend. Adeyemi, who confessed to being an Internet fraudster said he was not directly involved in the killing of Khadijat.

He explained that it was the two accomplices that killed and buried her, adding that the two fleeing suspects were brought to his house by the deceased.

He said, “I only provided the digger that was used to dig the grave inside my room where the deceased was buried. But Khadijat was not killed for ritual purpose.”
