The Jigawa State High Court sitting in Ringim on Tuesday sentenced 29years old Mustapha Idrith to death by hanging for killing his girlfriend.

Presiding Judge, Justice Ahmed Muhammad Abubakar sentenced the convict to death after finding him guilty of the offence.

Abubakar said the offence was contrary to section 221 of the penal code and sentenced him to death by hanging.

He said the punishment will serve as a warning to others with like minds.

DAILY POST reported that Police in Jigawa State arrested a 29-year-old Mustapha Idrith of Daneji village in Ringim Local Government Area of Jigawa State in connection with the killing of his girlfriend.

The suspect was arrested on Jan. 18, 2020, for allegedly using a knife to slit the throat of Nafisa Hashim of the same village after he invited her to the outskirts of the village.

The suspect who was an Abuja orange seller, however, revealed to DAILY POST that he killed his victim to bury his shame because she was carrying his three-month pregnancy out of wedlock.
