Douglass Ojugbo is dead because of his girlfriend. He is 22years old. The girlfriend is a daughter of Godwin Elenwa,  a former staff of NNPC.  Elenwa allegedly shot the 22-year-old student to death.  This was in March 2015.

The ruling of the Appeal Court in Calabar on Thursday through  Justice Y. Nimpar says in part, “the court having gone through all the evidence and addresses by the council to both parties finds the judgement of the lower court credible and therefore valid before the law.”

Earlier, the judgement of the High Court in Calabar through Justice Ukpa Ebitam reads in part, “The prosecution team also proved their second ingredient of the murder which was the intentional act.

To have fired the victim twice with his pump action gun, I agree that the killing was intentional and I hereby find the accused person guilty of murder.

“Subject to section 319 of the Criminal Code of Cross River State, any person who commits murder is sentenced to death by hanging.”
