    Man sentenced to death by hanging for killing newborn baby in Adamawa

    A 50-year-old, Saidu Abdullahi of Tarawo Ward in Song Local Government Area, Adamawa State is to be hanged by the neck until confirmed dead for killing his newborn baby boy.

    The convict and resident of Tarawo ward in Song LGA caused the death of the innocent child by strangulating him to death on the 9th March 2013.

    Saidu was apprehended and charged to the state High court for the offence of culpable homicide contrary to section 221 of the State Penal Code Law.

    Delivering judgement after finding him guilty of taking the life of a helpless child on 20th May 2019, the High Court presided by Honourable Justice Nathan Musa, convicted him to death.

    Justice Musa told the convict that his hands were tied, and had no option but invoke the provision of section 221 of the Penal Code Law by sentencing him to death, and prayed God to have mercy on him.

    Not ready to die, the convict later approached the Court of Appeal in Yola so as set aside the judgment of the trial court to enable him to continue with his life.

    The Appeal Court at its Yesterday’s sitting presided by Honourable Justice Abdullahi M. Bayero, however, dismissed the appeal and affirmed the verdict of the lower court.

    Justice Bayero said that it was clear that the appellant committed the crime based on the confessional statement he voluntarily made and that it was enough for a conviction.

    All that is required, according to him, is for the prosecution to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt, and that there was enough evidence that linked the convict with the offence, saying it was his act that sent the newborn baby boy to his early grave.

    He added that the validation of the conviction and sentence of the convict was a unanimous decision of the panel of judges, affirming the death sentence.

    Nigerian singer sentenced to death for blasphemy in Kano state

    An upper Sharia court in the Hausawa Filin Hockey area of the state said Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, 22, was guilty of committing blasphemy for a song he circulated via WhatsApp in March.

    Mr Sharif-Aminu did not deny the charges.

    Judge Khadi Aliyu Muhammad Kani said he could appeal against the verdict.

    States across Muslim-majority northern Nigeria use both secular law and Sharia law, which does not apply to non-Muslims.

    Only one of the death sentences passed by Nigeria's Sharia courts has been carried out since they were reintroduced in 1999.

    The singer who is currently in detention, had gone into hiding after he composed the song.

    Protestors had burnt down his family home and gathered outside the headquarters of the Islamic police, known as the Hisbah, demanding action against him.

    Critics said the song was blasphemous as it praised an imam from the Tijaniya Muslim brotherhood to the extent it elevated him above the Prophet Muhammad.

    'Judgement will serve as deterrent to others'

    The leader of the protesters that called for the musician's arrest in March, Idris Ibrahim, told the BBC that the judgement will serve as a warning to others "contemplating toeing Yahaya's path"."When I heard about the judgment I was so happy because it showed our protest wasn't in vain.

    "This [judgement] will serve as a deterrent to others who feel they could insult our religion or prophet and go scot-free," he said.

    Who is Yahaya Sharif-Aminu?

    Few people had heard of him before his arrest in March.

    An Islamic gospel musician, he is not well-known in northern Nigeria and his songs were not popular outside his Tjjaniya sect, who have many such musicians within their ranks.

    How common are death sentences in Sharia courts?

    Several sentences have been passed, including for women convicted of having extramarital sex - cases which have caused widespread condemnation.

    But only one has been carried out - a man convicted of killing a woman and her two children who was hanged in 2002.

    The last time a Nigerian Sharia court passed a death sentence was in 2016 when Abdulazeez Inyass, was sentenced to death for blaspheming against Islam during after a secret trial in Kano.

    He was alleged to have said that Sheikh Ibrahim Niasse, the Senegalese founder of the Tijaniya sect, which has a large following across West Africa, "was bigger than Prophet Muhammad".

    The sentence has not been carried out as a death penalty in Nigeria requires the sign-off of the state governor.

    Mr Inyass is still in detention.

    Gracious David-West: Nigerian serial killer sentenced to death in Port Harcourt



    A man who killed nine women in a case that caused outrage in Nigeria has been sentenced to death in the southern city of Port Harcourt.

    Prosecutors say 40-year-old Gracious David-West strangled his victims in hotel rooms across Nigeria between July and September 2019.

    Justice Adolphus Enebeli said he is to die by hanging.

    The death penalty is not commonly carried out in Nigeria the last three executions were in 2016.

    One of his victims survived the attack, but was not a witness during the trial. Authorities say her whereabouts are unknown despite being told not to leave the state.

    The judge found him guilty of attempted murder on that charge.

    Police say he also confessed to the murders of six other women elsewhere but he was not charged for those murders for lack of evidence.

    Authorities say the pattern of the murders point to a serial killing he had sex with his victims before binding their arms and feet with strips of white sheets.

    He also used sheets to strangle them, the court heard.

    Several of his victims were sex workers.

    How was he caught?
    At the beginning of the case and unrepresented by a counsel, David-West had pleaded guilty to the murders but the judge demanded a trial because of the gravity of the crime.

    At the time, authorities had suspected that he was working with accomplices but could not find any evidence as the case went to trial.

    At the height of the killings in September last year, outraged citizens of Port Harcourt took to the streets, calling on authorities to solve the murders.

    He was arrested on 19 September while trying to leave Port Harcourt as investigators closed in on him.

    CCTV had captured him leaving a hotel and the circulated photo went viral on social media.

    Security agents found him in a commercial bus travelling to Uyo in Akwa Ibom state, 45 minutes away from Port Harcourt.

    What do we know about the killer?
    David-West was born in the fishing town of Buguma in Rivers state, an oil-producing coastal community known for its beaches.

    The town has a history with oil militants who operated out of its numerous mangrove swamps at the height of the oil militancy in Nigerias Niger Delta in the early 2000s.

    Police say David-West was a member of the Greenlanders also known as Dey Gbam, a mafia-styled street gang that sprung out of the armed militant groups.

    Those who know him told the BBC that he was an only child born into a polygamous home, but he and his mother lived separately from the rest of the family.

    Reporters who saw him in court describe a man whose behaviour was erratic.

    He was quick-tempered, always interjected the judge, and tried to defend himself despite having a lawyer, said journalist Alwell Ene.

    He used low-cost hotels, with poor security and without CCTV cameras, in the city centre and on the fringes of Port Harcourt, according to the police.

    On one occasion he murdered a sex worker in a brothel in the Rumuola area of Port Harcourt, a known red-light zone in the city.

    Who are the victims?
    Very little is known about the victims, except for the names of the nine:

    Maureen Ewuru
    Jennifer Nwokocha
    Linda Waripa
    Dorcas Francis
    Blessing Effiong
    Rose Samuel
    Kelechi Bridget Onuoha
    Patience Hamo
    Antonia Ibe
    The BBCs Karina Igonikon in Port Harcourt says friends and family members of the deceased never appeared in court, except for the dad of one of the victims who only came on the opening day of the trial.

    It was as if they had no-one, no address, nothing to trace them with, she said.

    Police say he also confessed to killing six other women in Abia, Imo, Edo, Lagos and Edo states but he was not charged for those murders.

    No-one came forward for those murders and there was little evidence to pin them on him, state prosecutor Chidi Ekeh told the BBC.

    There are disputes about the identity of the women, and how they were able to follow the killer to the hotel.

    Investigators say he lured his victims by claiming to be a military officer and promising huge amounts of money for their time.

    One of the victims, Jennifer Nwokocha, was said to have arrived Port Harcourt from Lagos to celebrate her birthday.

    They met at the hotel where she was staying and had drinks, exchanged numbers and met up later in the night where she met her death, an investigator told the BBC.

    Police say he threatened the women with a knife and prevented them from raising alarm.

    Before killing them he robbed them of money, ATM cards and other valuables.

    We found the victims naked, bound with a white strip of cloth on their ankles and arms and neck.

    Although there is no concrete evidence that points to some form of ritualistic killing, I personally believe it was connected to such, Mr Ekeh told the BBC.

    The one who survived
    Benita Etim, a 23-year-old sex-worker, survived a night with the killer.

    She was not a witness during the trial as authorities say her whereabouts are unknown despite being told not to leave the state.

    In an interview with the BBC in September last year, she narrated how a man she met on 18 August had tied her up in a hotel room.

    She described how she was raped before he threatened her with a knife and tied her up to a chair.

    He cut the bed sheet into strings and bound my hands and legs to the chair and used another strip to tie my mouth.

    I shouted but nobody heard me because he had turned on the volume of the TV and the power generating set was close to the room, she said.

    I begged him not to kill me.

    At this point, he left the room with her phone and never returned.

    Hotel staff found her the next day after she had somehow managed to force the gag out of her mouth and screamed for help.

    Nigerian governor signs law approving death sentence for rapists

    The new Violence Against Persons Prohibition Law stipulates the death penalty for rape convicts who infect their victims with HIV/AIDS.

    By Abubakar Ahmadu Maishanu
    Premium Times

    The Governor of Jigawa State, Muhammad Badaru, has assented to a bill stipulating stiffer punishment for rapists.

    The new Violence Against Persons Prohibition Law stipulates the death penalty for rape convicts who infect their victims with HIV/AIDS.

    PREMIUM TIMES had reported how the state House of Assembly passed the bill last Wednesday and transmitted it to the governor for assent.

    While assenting to the bill, Wednesday, Mr Badaru commended the state’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Musa Aliyu, and the state’s Council of Ulamas for their collaboration leading to the passage of the bill.

    The governor said he assented to the bill after consultation with the Council of Ulamas who assured him that no section of the law is in conflict with Islam and the culture of the people of Jigawa State.

    The law, expected to be gazetted soon, also stipulates that the Sharia law will take precedence if any matter in the new law contradicts Islamic teachings.

    The chairman, Jigawa council of Ulamas, Bashir-Ahmad, said the new law “was scrutinised and vetted by the religious body to ensure its conformity with Islam”.

    The official commended the governor for his trust in the council “that made him to task the members to work on the new law before his final assent”.

    The new law

    The new law also stipulates that rape victim(s) would be compensated with not less than N500,000, while the court would order rape offenders “to be subjected to public shame through radio announcements”.

    Also the law says the use of chemical, biological or any harmful substance that causes lifetime deformity to a rape victim will attract life imprisonment without an option of fine.

    The bill is an adaptation of a similar bill passed by the National Assembly and adopted by some state Houses of Assembly. The bill also proscribes certain conducts that are injurious to the society.

    It also seeks to offer “higher protection to the vulnerable in the society”.

    The bill was unanimously passed by the 30 members of the legislative house representing the 27 council areas of the state.

    Nigerians recently called for stiffer punishment for convicted rapists as sexual assault cases rose steadily across the nation.

    2,956 Inmates On Death Row As Federal Govt Considers Commuting Death Sentence To Life Jail

    By David Aduge-Ani
    Leadership

    Following concerns over increase in the number of condemned inmates in Nigerian correctional centres, the federal government is planning a process of commuting the sentences of inmates who have been on death row for over 10 years to life imprisonment.

    This is even as LEADERSHIP Sunday findings showed that Nigeria now has 2,956 inmates on death row, a shift from the 2,742 recorded in 2019.

    Findings by our correspondent also showed that of the 2,956 on death row, the number of condemned male inmates is put at 2,903 while females make up the remaining 53.

    While the number which initially stood at 1,606 in 2017 rose drastically to 2,742 in 2019, further findings revealed that the last execution of condemned criminals in the country was carried out in late December 2016, when three prisoners were executed in Edo State.

    It would be recalled that the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN), had at a recent press briefing on the achievements of the Presidential Committee on Correctional Service Reform and Decongestion, asked the 36 state governors to act in line with Section 212 of the 1999 Constitution on the number of inmates sentenced to death as a means of decongesting prisons.

    The death penalty as authorised by Section 33 of the Constitution of Nigeria defines capital crimes to include murder, terrorism-related offenses, rape, robbery, kidnapping, sodomy, homosexuality, blasphemy, adultery, incest, assisting the suicide of a person legally unable to consent, perjury in a capital case causing wrongful execution, treason, some military offences like mutiny and practice of indigenous beliefs in states applying Shariah law.

    Malami stated, “Also, to be revisited is the issue of condemned convicts on death row for over 10 years with a view to getting relevant authorities to commute the sentences to life imprisonment.

    “This is based on the provisions of Section 12 (2) (c) of the Nigerian Correctional Service Act, 2019. A review of cases of inmates awaiting trial for upwards of five years will also be considered.”

    Controller General of the Correctional Service, Haliru Nababa, said almost 3,000 inmates who have spent 10 years on death row still live under the suspense and mental torture of death.

    “Out of the number, a greater percentage of them may have finished appeals and are still waiting for the determination of the approving authority to either approve their execution or commit them to life imprisonment,” he said.

    He said the implication of delayed execution after court pronouncement is that death row inmates are usually not amenable to corrections.

    Nababa, who spoke through his agency’s image maker, Francis Enobore, said, “We can understand that some governors dither in signing death warrants on humanitarian, political, religious, emotional and ethnic grounds. But whatever may be the mitigating sentiment, the delay in carrying out this executive function is breeding congestion that has impacted significantly on the administration of justice. That is aside the helplessness endured in the roller coaster of emotions for these condemned inmates who have practically been reduced to the status of the living dead.

    “Statutorily, governors are not bound to sign the warrants for the execution of people on death row. They can exercise their prerogative to commute such sentences to lifetime in jail or reduced jail terms. They can also grant such convicts state pardon, therefore putting a closure to the matter. But it is unacceptable for them to leave inmates perpetually on death row.”

    He added that the obligation on the governors is specifically enshrined in Section 212 of the 1999 Constitution as well as Section 221 of the Penal Code and Section 319 of the Criminal Code. All these prescribe capital punishment for murder while Sections 37 and 38 of the Criminal Code prescribe the same punishment for treasonable felony. There is of course a global campaign against capital punishment, but it is still applicable in Nigeria. Majority of these death row inmates are in solitary confinement, having been convicted for such offences as murder, treason, and armed robbery. Some states in the country have also enacted capital punishment for those convicted of kidnapping.

    Describing the act as an inherent violation of their rights and dignity to keep people interminably on death row, especially for cases that have been concluded by the Supreme Court, he said such practice is antithetical and capable of inflicting traumatic shock on the condemned inmates awaiting an imaginary death in solitary confinement. To put in context, prisoners on death row are condemned to a kind of existential limbo, existing as entities in cold storage rather than living as human beings.

    “We therefore imagine the harrowing spell condemned prisoners go through daily in solitary cells, humbled by the force of an impending death that seems to be an eternity,” he added.

    However, the NCoS chief said there were options for those charged with the responsibility of signing death warrants of condemned inmates.

    “They can convert the death penalty to life imprisonment and after sometime, reduce it to termed imprisonment. If they are converted to life or termed imprisonment we will take them to areas where they can be productive. They will learn trade. Some can be sent to our camps, where they engage in farming activities and they will help boost the economy and even support themselves and their families,” he said.

    A human rights lawyer and activist, Barrister Destiny Imong Ayang, said, “Whatever may be the justification, prolonged solitude is a punishment that is detrimental to the psychology of death row inmates. It kills the victims incessantly and unmercifully. We welcome Section 12 (2c) of the new NCS Act which provides that where an inmate on death sentence had exhausted legal procedures for appeal and a period of 10 years had elapsed without execution of the sentence, the chief judge may commute the death sentence to life imprisonment. It is the right thing to do.”

    An Abuja-based activist and national coordinator of Peace and Anti-Corruption Advocacy, Comrade James Okoronkwo, blamed the delay on poor judicial system in the country, adding that justice delayed is justice denied.

    “Keeping condemned inmates perpetually in custody has a lot of implications. One is the security implication. You know, these are people that have come to the last bus stop. They are usually very difficult to control and are usually very restive,” he said.

    A Delta State-based judge, Marshal Umukoro, has reportedly called on governors in the country to sign warrants for persons on death row.

    LEADERSHIP Sunday gathered that Umukoro said doing so would help decongest the correctional centres. He also said doing so would deter people from committing crimes that would land them in such punishment.

    His position is in sharp contrast to that of international right groups like Amnesty International (AI) which have repeatedly called for a stop to the death penalty.

    24-year-old sentenced to death for stealing phones, cash in Ekiti

    An Ekiti State High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti, on Tuesday, sentenced a 24-year-old man, Sola Jegede, to death by hanging for dispossessing some men of their phones and money.

    He was found guilty of using weapons, including a gun, knife, digger and club to rob Ibukun Ilesanmi, Seun Ilesanmi and Tope Ilesanmi of their phones and undisclosed sums of money.

    Justice Oluwatoyin Abodunde said, “The defendant is found guilty as charged on counts one, two and three for the offence of armed robbery.

    “He is accordingly convicted and sentenced to death by hanging for the offence of armed robbery and may the Lord have mercy on his soul.”

    Abodunde, however, discharged and acquitted Jegede on counts four and five, saying, “No reasonable court can convict him of the offence of rape given the totality of the evidence of the prosecution with respect to the offence of rape.

    “He is found not guilty and discharged and acquitted on the offence of rape.”

    The prosecutor, Omobola Oyewole, said the offences contravened Section 1(2)(a) of the Robbery and Firearms (Special Provisions) Act, Cap. R11 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004, and Section 358 of the Criminal Code Law, Cap C16, Laws of Ekiti State, 2012.

    To prove his case, the prosecutor called seven witnesses and tendered as exhibits Blackberry and Nokia phones, a digger and a knife, among others, while the convict’s counsel, Adedayo Adewumi, called no witness.

    24-year-old man sentenced to death for killing brother over okada in Ekiti

    Abiodun Nejo

    An Ekiti State High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti has sentenced a 24 years old man, Ebenezer Olorunleke, to death by hanging for killing his brother, Sunday.

    Olorunleke, an indigene of Kogi State, and others had on August 29, 2019 at Abe Cocoa Area, Housing Estate, Oke-Ila Ado Ekiti, conspired to rob his brother, Sunday, of his Bajaj motorcycle with registration number ADK 100 UJ and N40,000.

    The suspect, who was armed with a knife at the time of the robbery, murdered his brother.

    He was consequently arraigned and tried on three count charge of conspiracy, armed robbery and murder contrary to Sections 6(b), 1(2) (a) of the Robbery and Firearms (Special Provisions) Act, Cap R11, Vol. 14, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004, also Section 316 and punishable under Section 319 (1) of the Criminal Code, Cap C16, Laws of Ekiti State 2012.

    One of the witnesses, who testified before the court said, “I went to his house to inform him of his brother’s death. He told me that he was attacked by armed robbers when I saw wounds all over his body. It was at that moment that I suspected him for lack of coordination in his explanation.

    “The matter was later reported at Ologede Police Station, Ado Ekiti. When the police arrived, it was discovered that he had sold all his properties and was about to escape with his brother’s motorcycle before he was arrested. He confessed to have murdered his brother.”

    The prosecutor, Gbemiga Adaramola, called five witnesses to prove his case and tendered the defendant’s confessional statements, photographs of the deceased and medical report, among others as exhibits.

    The defendant spoke through his counsel and called no witness.

    In the court verdict, Justice Bamidele Omotoso found Olorunleke guilty, saying, “The prosecution has discharged the burden on Ebenezer Olorunleke and established beyond reasonable doubt the offence of conspiracy, armed robbery and murder against him.

    “The defendant is guilty as charged. The sentence of the court upon you is that you will be hanged by neck until you are dead.”

    Zamfara Okays Death Penalty For Bandits, Kidnappers

    By Channels Television

    As part of measures to tackle insecurity, Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, has okayed the death penalty for bandits, kidnapper among several others.

    The governor signed the law on Tuesday in Gusau, shortly after the House of Assembly recommended the death penalty for criminal elements.

    After signing the bill for the prosecution of banditry, cattle rustling, cultism, kidnapping and incidental offences into law, Matawalle said the law will serve as an instrument to prosecute offenders of the crimes in the state.

    He restated that the conventional security forces are operating in the various theatres, and they are not only overstretched but lack the modern war equipment to prosecute bandits and insurgents.

    The governor stated that those who criticise the Zamfara State Governments decision to support people to bear firearms for self-defence against the ruthless terrorists ought to take into consideration the scale of the problem the people are facing.

    This is even as he reiterated his administrations determination to go to any length within the precincts of the law in order to secure the state and restore peace in the communities and place the Zamfara on a sound trajectory of development.

    He emphasised that the executive order number 7, 8, 9 and which he had signed into law last year will provide a legal instrument of operations for the four special committees he inaugurated on Thursday, 27th June 2022 to ensure the security measures put in place.

    The law stated that anyone who is guilty of banditry, cattle rustling, cultism, and kidnapping is liable to the death penalty.

    It also said that anybody aiding and abetting the crimes is liable to a life sentence or imprisonment of 10 or 20 years

    Ekiti court orders hanging of 4 armed robbery, murder

    An Ado-Ekiti High Court has sentenced 4 men, Babangida Amodu, 25, Oluwafemi Ibrahim, 20, Ojo Ayodele, 25, and Okunato Dada, 20, convicted of armed robbery and murder, to die by hanging.

    The 4 men, who were arraigned on Oct. 4, 2018, on charges of conspiracy, armed robbery and murder, had pleaded not guilty, but the court ordered their remand in custody

    Delivering judgment, Justice John Adeyeye said, "It is obvious that the defendants acted in concert as they all agreed to rob Ibrahim Isiaka and Mohammed Sanusi, who died as a result of the injury inflicted on him during the robbery.

    In conclusion, the prosecution has successfully proved the 3 counts of conspiracy to rob, armed robbery and murder preferred against them and they are each convicted accordingly in respect of each of the offences.

    Each of the defendants is cautioned and discharged in count 1 (conspiracy), and sentenced to death by hanging until they are dead on count 2 (Armed Robbery) and count 3 (Murder).

    May the Lord have mercy on your souls," the Judge pronounced.

    According to the charge, the 4 convicts on June 7, 2018, at Ijoka Area of Ado Ekiti, within the jurisdiction of the court, conspired and robbed Ibrahim Isiaka of his phone and N1500 while armed with guns and knives.

    The charge sheet further said that on the same day, date and aforementioned place, the convicted murdered one Muhammed Sanusi.

    The offences, Mr Felix Awoniyi, the prosecuting counsel said, contravened sections 516, 402 (2) and 316 of the Criminal Code Cap C16 Laws of Ekiti State of Nigeria, 2012.

    Awoniyi during the trial called five witnesses and tendered statements of the 4 convicts and medical report as exhibits.

    Ibrahim Isiaka, a prosecution witness, who was led in evidence by Awoniyi, recalled that he and the deceased were going to buy food and charge their phones near the mosque at Ijoka, at 7:45 pm, when the defendants attacked them.

    We were approaching the charging center, some hoodlums just appeared and stopped us, they demanded our phones and money.

    We declined their requests and they dragged me and collected my Techno phone valued at N7,500 and a cash sum of N1,500.

    When they started beating Sanusi, I ran away to call our people, but before we got there, they had left.

    We met the deceased in a pool of blood; having been stabbed on the neck.

    I recognised the faces of the defendants during the act and the case was later reported at the Police station, he said.

    The defence team, comprised of Messrs Adeyinka Opaleke, Ekiti State Coordinator of the Legal Aid Council; O. Abiola and A. Ayobioloja, called no witnesses.

    There are lots of extremely smug and self-satisfied people in what would be deemed lower down in society, who also deserve to be pulled up. In a proper free society, you should be allowed to make jokes about absolutely anything.
