According to the prosecutor, the offence contravenes the provision of section 221(b) of the Penal Code.

The defence counsel, Muhummad Dan’azumi, presented the defendant to defend himself, one other witness and tendered five exhibits.

Dan’azumi urged the court to recommend the defendant for prerogative of mercy pursuant to section 313 of ACJL.

In his testimony, Frank said:” I didn’t kill Ummulkhulsum intentionally but stabbed her in self defence after she grabbed my testes”.

He pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy in its judgment.

Speaking with newsmen shortly after the judgment, the victims mother, Hajiya Fatima Zubairu, expressed satisfaction with the judge’s decision.(NAN)
