Man Jailed For Killing Girlfriend With Machete




A 46-year-old man, Tunde Omisakin, has been sentenced to 12 years imprisonment by an Igbosere High Court in Lagos for causing the death of his girlfriend, Tina Toroso.

Justice Adedayo Akintoye, on Wednesday, October 16, convicted Omisakin of manslaughter for cutting the right hand of his girlfriend with a cutlass which resulted in her death.

According to the judge, the prosecution proved the ingredients of manslaughter beyond every reasonable doubt, adding that the prosecution witnesses’ evidence clearly established how the incident happened.

“The prosecution evidence directly pointed to the defendant as the person who caused the death of the deceased (Miss Toroso).

“The defendant did not deny that he cut her hand but said he did not intend to kill her.

“I hold that the ingredient of manslaughter has been proven by the prosecution beyond reasonable doubt,” Justice Akintoye said.

She held, “The evidence adduced by investigating officers during investigations cannot amount to hearsay. I hold that the evidence of the prosecution is consistent and therefore reliable. This court hereby finds Tunde Omisakin guilty of manslaughter  and is dully convicted.”
