A high court in Yobe on Tuesday sentenced Muhammed Adamu, an applicant, to death by hanging for killing Hauwa Muhammad, his girlfriend.

Delivering judgment, A. Jauro, the trial judge, held that he found him guilty of murder under section 221 of the penal code.

Jauro also held that the prosecution has proved its case beyond reasonable doubt that Hauwa was intentionally killed by the convict.

“By virtues of section 273 Criminal Procedural Code, when a person is sentenced to death, he be hanged by the neck to death,” the judge ruled.

“I therefore sentence you that Muhammed Adamu to die by hanging. May God have mercy on you.”

Speaking to journalists after the judgment, M. Dauda, defence counsel, said that he would carefully study the verdict and possibly file an appeal.

The convict also told journalists that: “I have been praying to God for the best judgment.”

”I believe that it is the will of God for me and I believe this verdict is God’s choice. I whole heatedly accept it”.

According to NAN, on June 5, 2018, the police in Yobe had alleged that Adamu killed his girlfriend on May 29, 2018, during an altercation.
