UPDATE: See photos of the officers sentenced to death over Apo Six killings

An FCT High Court has convicted and sentenced two out of five policemen accused in the extrajudicial killings of six Apo traders in 2005 to death.   The accused Ezekiel Acheneche and Emmanuel Baba were convicted of homicide punishable by death under section 22 1a of the penal code while others were absolved of wrongdoing and discharged.

Justice Ishaq Bello while delivering judgment on Thursday held that that the action of the convicted men was condemnable because there was no evidence that the traders did anything to constitute a threat to police at the time they were shot dead.

Omojuwa.Com published the story as it broke earlier today. However, we have been able to lay our hands on the pictures of the convicted policemen.
