A man identified as Mustapha Idris, reportedly killed his pregnant girlfriend, Nafisa Hashimu so as to avoid what the society would say about her concieving out of wedlock.
On January 12, 2020, she was found in a pool of her blood. Following the police investigation, it was discovered that Mustapha slit the throat of late Nafisa, leaving her to die in the pool of her blood.
Initially he denied when been interrogated but later admitted to the crime saying:
“I’m ashamed of how the society will see us after she delivers the unborn child out of wedlock, and thus I decided to terminate her life to stay away from shame,”
After several months of trial, the Presiding Judge, Justice Ahmed Kazaure, found him guilty of the crime and sentenced him to death by hanging.
