Justice Dabo said after listening to the submission, deliberations and witnesses from both sides, the court sentenced the first accused to death by hanging under Section 221 of Penal Code of Northern Nigeria.

Mr. Adamu, who resides at Tudun Jukun, Zaria, was convicted on a two-count-charge of homicide and criminal conspiracy.

The first and second convict persons were dragged before the court for killing Shamsuddeen Adamu, 27.
