Rivers State serial killer, Gracious David-West has been sentenced to death by hanging.
Justice Adolphus Enebeli who presided over the case at the State High Court on Friday, made the pronouncement.
The Judge found David-West guilty of the murder of 11 young women as well as the attempted murder of one Benita Etims in hotels in Rivers State in 2019.
Justice Enebeli held that the prosecution team was able to prove their case behind reasonable doubts with all the evidence and witnesses brought before the court.
“Gracious David-West should be hanged on his neck until he is dead,” the Judge ruled.
However, the second defendant, Nimi ThankGod who was facing one-count charge of misconduct with the corpse of one of the serial killer’s victims, was discharged and acquitted after the prosecution team failed to prove their case against him.
