A year after killing his ex-girlfriend, a Yobe High Court has sentenced Muhammed Adamu to death by hanging.
The murderer, Adamu, killed his ex-girlfriend, Hauwa Muhammad, who was just 24-year-old at the time of her death, for dumping him for another man.
Delivering judgment, Justice A. Jauro, held that he found him guilty of murder under Section 221 of the Penal Code.
Speaking to newsmen after the verdict, the convict said:
”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”.
On June 5, 2018, the Police in Yobe alleged that Adamu killed Hauwa, on May 29, 2018, during an altercation.
