GHANA: COURT SENTENCES 22-YEAR-OLD WOMAN TO DEATH BY HANGING IN TAMALE

July 4, 2016: A Tamale High Court has sentenced a 22-year-old woman, Zelia Sulemana, to death by hanging for murder.
A five-member jury found Zeila guilty of stabbing Rawdia Aminu, a nursing student, in her chest and abdomen in 2014, leading to her death.
According to theĀ prosecution, Zeila stabbed Aminu during an argument over her (Zeilaā€™s) boyfriend, Abdul-Rahman, who happened to be the ex-boyfriend of Aminu.
The prosecution said Zeila deceived Aminu by telling her that she was interested in attending nursing school and started a friendship with her. She also reportedly introduced Aminu to her parents as a friend.
On the day of the stabbing, Zeila is said to have called Aminu for a discussion outside her house.
In the course of the discussion, she said to have questioned Aminu about Abdul-Rahman, which led to an argument.
The prosecution said Aminu did not know that her ex-boyfriend, Abdul-Rahman, had become boyfriend to Zeila.
Zeila is said to have then stabbed Aminu out of anger, leading to her death. (Sources: yen.com.gh, 04/07/2016)
