NIGERIA: COURT SENTENCES LEADER OF LAND GRAB GANG TO DEATH BY HANGING

February 23, 2018:

A Kogi High Court sitting in Lokoja has sentenced the leader of a six-man gang, Mohammed Audu, to death by hanging for stabbing one Hussein Isa to death over a land dispute.
The trial Judge and Chief Judge of the state, Justice Nasir Ajanah, handed down the sentence on February 23 upon conviction of the accused in a case of culpable homicide preferred against him.
“The sentence of the court upon you, Mohammed Sani Audu is that you be hanged by the neck until you are certified dead or by lethal injection,” the judge ruled.
Earlier, the chief judge said the prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt and therefore, convicted the accused accordingly.
Audu, of Kaduna Junction in the Adavi Local Government Area of Kogi, was charged with culpable homicide, punishable with death, according to Section 221(a) of the Penal Code.
The convict, according to the prosecution, had led a six-man gang to a land which was in dispute between the families of the deceased and one of his gang members, Momoh Abaniki.
