DOWNLOAD: Appeal Court Judgement setting Al-Mustapha free

The Court of Appeal in Lagos, on Friday last week, discharged and acquitted Hamza Al-Mustapha and Lateef Sofolahan from the murder of Kudirat Abiola.

The judgment of the appeal court overturned that of the Lagos High Court which sentenced both men to death by hanging.

In a unanimous judgment that lasted about two hours, the court berated Mojisola Dada, the Lagos High Court judge who convicted Messrs Al-Mustapha and Sofolahan, accusing her of being “stroked to secure a conviction by all means.”
