Court Sentenced Housewife To Death By Hanging For Killing Husband In Kano

A Kano State High Court presided by Justice A. T. Badamasi on Friday sentenced a 35-year-old housewife, Rashida Sa’idu, to death by hanging for pushing her husband to his death from the stairs.

The convict, who lives at Dorayi Quarters, Kano, was convicted on a charge of culpable homicide, which contravened Section 221 of the penal code.

Prosecution counsel, Maryam Jibrin, told the court that the convict committed the offence on February 25, 2019.

Jibrin said on the same day at about 8 pm, the convict suspected her 53-year-old husband, Adamu Ali, of infidelity when he was having a telephone conversation at their Dorayi Quarters residence in Kano.

“In the process, they engaged in a fight and the convict pushed her husband during the struggle from the stairs to his death,” she said.

The prosecution said until his death, the victim was a lecturer at the Federal College of Education, Kano.

Jibril called four witnesses to prove her case of culpable homicide against the suspect.

However, counsel to the convict, Illiya Dauda, who denied the charge, called two witnesses to counter the allegation of culpability in the death of her husband.
But the Judge held that the prosecution had proven his case beyond reasonable doubt, saying the convict was responsible for the death of her husband.

“The convict has been sentenced to death by hanging,” he held.
