- Hamisu killed Zainab and buried her in a shallow grave in his house
- Prosecution counsel proved case beyond reasonable doubt – justice
A High Court sitting in Ringim, Jigawa state, has sentenced one Nasiru Hamisu to death by hanging for burying his biological daughter alive.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed Kazaure gave the verdict after pronouncing Hamisu guilty of killing his 4-year-old daughter Zainab and burying her alive in his room.
Ekohotblog reports that Prosecution counsel, Dr. Musa Adamu Aliyu, Attorney General Jigawa State presented three witnesses before the court, including a medical doctor at Ringim General Medical Hospital, defendant’s father and the mother of the deceased and ex-wife of the defendant.
Police had last year arrested Nasiru Hamisu for allegedly killing his daughter and burying her in a shallow grave in his house.
Justice Ahmad Muhammad Kazaure, however, said the prosecution counsel had proved his case beyond a reasonable doubt.
Consequently, he sentenced the accused to death by hanging.
