A youth pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Akolade Arowolo, has been sentenced to death over the murder of his wife. ‘Jesus Have Mercy’ was the prayer coming from his month when the Judge pronounced his death sentenced.
His late wife, Titilayo, was a banker with Skye Bank, now Polaris Bank until she met her untimely death at the hands of her husband.
Arowolo, after receiving his sentence
Prosecutors were able to show compelling
evidence that proved Arowole actually murdered his wife.
The evidence led to his conviction and
final sentencing by Justice Lateefat Okunu of the Ikeja High Court. The judge maintained in her over three hours judgement that the evidence before the court proved Arowolo to be guilty of murdering his wife in their matrimonial home.
He was sentenced to death by hanging.
Pastor Arowolo who could not hold back his emotions, burst into prayers. He also fell down in the dock and began to scream ‘Jesus have mercy.’
