Court sentences wife to death for pushing husband out of storey building in Kano

A wife in Kano State, has been sentenced to death by hanging by the Kano State High Court for the murder of her husband, Adamu Ali after pushing him out of a storey building in the state.

The convict had been charged to court since last year, following her alleged complicity in the death of her husband who was, until his death, a staff of the Federal College of Education, FCE, Kano.

Checkout Magazine gathered that the convict committed murder after she and her late husband were involved in a fight at their residence in Dorayi Quarters, where she pushed the deceased down from one-storey building which eventually led to his death.

During the trials, the prosecution produced four witnesses to the court to prove their charges against the suspect.

However, the suspect, through her lawyer, Illiya Dauda, denied the charges and proceeded to produce her own two witnesses to counter the allegation of culpability in the charges.

Thereafter, in his judgement, Justice Ahmad Badamasi held that the prosecution had proven their case “beyond reasonable doubt”, adding that suspect was pivotal to the death of her 56-year-old husband.

The Judge, therefore, sentenced her to death by hanging.
