An FCT high court today, sentenced one Mister Obinna Echanu to death by hanging for killing an Uber driver.
Channels Television revealed that Obinna was standing trial alongside one Mister Everly Nnerun for allegedly conspiring to kill the Uber driver identified as Edwin Ali on December 26th, 2016 along the Abuja airport road.
The accused were charged with five counts which include armed robbery, conspiracy, illegal possession of firearms and culpable homicide.
