Nigeria: Undergraduate Remanded for Allegedly Killing 17-Year-Old Boy

14 October 2019

A chief magistrate court in Kano has ordered that a 22-year-old student, Nu'uman Abubakar, who allegedly killed a 17-year-old boy, be remanded in a correctional centre.

Abubakar, a student of Kano State University of Technology, Wudil, is charged with culpable homicide.

The chief magistrate, Mr Muhammad Idris, adjourned the matter until October 28, for mention.

The prosecution counsel, ASP Badamasi Gawuna, told the court that the complainant, Abdulrahman Haladu, who resides in Jan Dutse village, Wudil Local Government Area of Kano State, reported the matter at Wudil Police Station on August 1.

Gawuna alleged that the complainant told the police that the defendant hit his son with a club during a misunderstanding.

He said the victim was taken to the Wudil General Hospital for treatment, where he was confirmed dead.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The offence, he said, contravened Section 221 of the Penal Code. (NAN)
