19-year-old Ibrahim Khalil has been sentenced to death by hanging after he was found guilty of killing his five-year-old nephew, Ahmad Ado, in Kano.

Kano State High Court, presided by Justice Usman Naabba found Khalil guilty of murdering his nephew by sealing his mouth and nose with a sellotape and burying him in a shallow grave.

In his judgment, Justice Na’abba, held that the prosecution had proven their case beyond reasonable doubt and consequently, sentenced the convict to 14 years imprisonment for kidnapping.

Na’abba also sentenced the convict to death by hanging for homicide.

The Prosecution Counsel, Lamido Sorondinki, had earlier informed the court that the convict committed the offence sometime in 2019 at Karkasara Quarters in Kano metropolis.

Sorondinki said that the defendant kidnapped his sister’s son, Ado, and in the process used a sellotape to cover his nose and mouth, before burying him in a shallow grave at Sabuwar Sheka in Kano.

The prosecution presented three witnesses to the court and four exhibits to prove their case against the defendant.
