Father buries his daughter alive inside his room in Jigawa

A callous father of a four-year-old girl has been sentenced to death for burying her alive.

Jigawa State High Court sitting in Ringim by Justice Ahmed Mohammed Kazaure said Nasiru Hamisu was accused of killing his 4-year-old biological daughter Zainab and burying her alive in his room.

Prosecution counsel, Dr. Musa Adamu Aliyu, Attorney General Jigawa State presented three witnesses before the court, including a medical doctor at Ringim General Medical Hospital, defendant’s father and the mother of the deceased and ex-wife of the defendant.

Police had last year arrested one Nasiru Hamisu for allegedly killing his daughter and burying her in a shallow grave in his house.

Justice Ahmad Muhammad Kazaure, however, said the persecution counsel had proved his case beyond a reasonable doubt.
He sentenced the accused to death by hanging.
