Justice Aisha Mahmoud of Kano State High Court has sentenced a 29-year-old man, Sagiru Abdullahi, to death by hanging for stabbing his 55-year-old stepmother, Zainab Dan’Azumi, to death.
Justice Mahmoud on Thursday, convicted Abdullahi on one count of culpable homicide.
The court held that the prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt and sentenced the convict to death.
The prosecution counsel, Mr Tijjani Ibrahim, had earlier told the court that Abdullahi committed the offence in June 2014 at Kurmawa Quarters, Kano.
He said the convict dealt several machete cuts on the victim’s head, leading to her death.
“The victim was rushed to the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital, Kano, where she was confirmed dead by a doctor,” he said.
