by on October 19, 2017

A Kano Chief Mag­istrate Court on Wednesday ar­raigned two brothers – Auwal Adamu, (26) and Rabiu Adamu, (27) for allegedly strangling their 55-year-old father to death.

The incident occurred in Sumaila Local Gov­ernment Area of the state.

The wo brothers are facing a two-count charge of criminal con­spiracy and culpable homicide, contrary to section 97 and 221 of the Penal Code, respectively.

The prosecutor, In­spector Pogu Lale, told the court that a good Samaritan reported the case of culpable homi­cide to Sumaila Police Division, on Sept. 30.

Lale said on Sept. 24, at about 6 pm, the defendants criminally conspired with their six other brothers now at large and strangled their biological Father, one Adamu Gamji, 55, to death.

He alleged that the de­fendants suspected their father to be responsible for the death of three members of their fam­ily and also the sickness of their brother, one Sale Adamu.

When the charges were read to the defen­dants, they pleaded not guilty.

The Chief Magistrate, Muhammad Jibril, or­dered the remand of the defendants in prison custody and adjourned the case to November 16 for mention.
