A Yola High Court presided over by Justice Abdul-Azeez Waziri has

sentenced five men to death for culpable homicide and for killing a

herdsman.

The convicts, Alex Amos, Alheri Phanuel, Holy Boniface, Jerry Gideon

and Jari Sabagi of Demsa Local Government Area of Adamawa State,

were found guilty of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide which

contravened Section 96 (1) (a) and Sections 79 and 221 (b) of the

Penal Code of Laws of Adamawa State, 1997.

The convicts were said to have on June 1, 2017 at Kadamun village in

Demsa Local Government Area willfully and intentionally conspired and

attacked three herdsmen rearing cattle, killing one of them, Adamu

Buba, whose body they threw into a river and also maimed several

cows.

Justice Waziri said the case against the accused persons had been

proved beyond reasonable doubt by the counsel to the state, Mr.

Salihu Mohammed.

He ruled: “I hereby sentence the accused persons on counts one and

two to death by hanging, while on counts four and five, I sentence the

accused to three years in prison to run concurrently.”

“Any aggrieved party is at liberty to file an appeal to the Court of

Appeal, Yola Judicial Division within 90 days from today.”
