Man sentenced to death for beheading boy

Unread postby Wsj » Wed Dec 06, 2017 5:49 pm

One John Yakubu has been sentenced to death by hanging for beheading a seven-year old boy, Samuel Danjuma in 2012.

Justice James Abundaga of a Nasarawa State High Court 4, in his judgement on Wednesday found Yakubu guilty of culpable homicide punishable by death.


He said the death sentence was in line with Section 221 of the penal code based on the confessional statement of the convict.

The convict was arrested alongside one Ishaya Daklung by operatives of the Department for State Security Service (DSS) on July 22, 2012.

The judge said Yakubu was also found in possession of a fresh head of a boy, concealed in a polythene bag.

According to Abundaga, Yakubu in his confessional statement, lured the boy, his neighbour’s son, to a stream in Agwan Galadima in Nasarawa Local Government and drowned him before severing his head.

Abundaga, however, sentenced the second accused, Daklung, to four years in prison with hard labour, saying that Daklung’s sentence was in line with Section 219 of the penal code.
