The Police on Tuesday arraigned a 19-year-old boy, Kabiru Ibrahim, in a Kano Magistrates’ Court for killing his 75-year-old master, Alhaji Rabi’u Goga.
The offence is contrary to Section 221 of the Penal Code.
According to the First Information Report (FIR), on March 26, 2013 at about 6: 00 hours, one Hajiya Halima Rabi’u Goga and her daughter, Rukayya Rabi’u Goga reported the matter to the Kofar Wambai Police Division in Kano metropolis.
They said that on the same date, at about 02:00 hours, the accused, Kabiru Ibrahim, of the same address, entered the house of her deceased husband and stabbed him with a knife severally.
According to the FIR, the deceased sustained various degrees of injury and as a result, he was rushed to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead by medical experts.
When the content of the FIR was read to the accused, he pleaded guilty.
The Police Prosecutor, Mr Ibrahim Abdul-Razak, urged the court to adjourn the matter in view of the nature of the case which he said was capital in nature as the court lacked jurisdiction to entertain the matter.
The Presiding Judge, Magistrate Umma Kurawa, adjourned the matter to June 3, for further mention and ordered the accused person to be remanded in prison custody.
