BREAKING: Killers of Rev Fr.John Alexander Adeyi sentenced to death by hanging in Benue State

The Benue State High Court No. 2 presided over by Hon. Justice Aondover kakaan sentence Suleiman Goma and Garba IDi the killers of vicar General of Otukpo Very Late Rev Fr. John Alexander Adeyi to death by hanging,on a six count charges.

The late Reverend Fr. Alex was kidnapped by two northerners who killed him after collecting ransom. The decomposing body of the kidnapped Catholic Diocese of Otukpo, Rev. Father John Adeyi, was found abandoned behind the local government council secretariat, Obu Otukpa, and was found decaying. 

He was on his way to Otukpa, the headquarters of Ogbadibo LGA to settle an issue when the gunmen whisked him away to an unknown destination. The kidnappers collected N2m ransom from the family of the Vicar General of Otukpo, yet, refused to release him.
The arrest of the four-man kidnapping gang came just as the deputy leader of the gang, Saidu Abdullahi, who confessed to personally shooting the priest, told journalists that he killed the Reverend Father because it was “destined he will kill him that way.
Other members of the gang paraded at Force Headquarters yesterday were Suleiman Gina, gang leader; Aliyu Garba and Hartuna Idi. They confessed to collecting N1.7 million ransom from the family of the cleric after the Church refused to pay. Asked why they collected the ransom after killing the victim, Abdullahi said: “It was due to temptation. “We killed him because the vigilantes of the town discovered where we were keeping the priest and they were coming in large numbers to free him. That was why we shot him and ran away.”
Inspite of the long 2-years of trial, we can say,justice has been served even though it wont bring the decease back. God rest his soul and console the family.
