Residents gave the duo a hot chase and Ademola was caught, while his accomplice escaped.

Justice Lekan Ogunmoye, in his judgment, pointed that though the defendant was charged with armed robbery, “evidence before the court only established the offense of attempted armed robbery against him, in that there was no evidence that he succeeded in stealing anything from his victim.”

“He is sentenced to life imprisonment,” the judge declared.
