    Owolabi, of the Physical and Health Education Department caused the death of Kolawole by stabbing him with a bottle.

    Gbolagunte said the counsel prosecuting the case, Mr A. Olawale, a Deputy Director in the Oyo State Ministry of Justice had proved the case beyond reasonable doubt. The judge said that the evidence before him showed that the accused committed the offence as charged.  

    He ruled that the accused should be sentenced to death by hanging to serve as deterrent to others. Gbolagunte advised parents to always monitor their children to prevent them from misbehahing.
