It was gathered that Ali, an indigene of Zango village in Tafawa Balewa Local Government of the state, was found guilty of culpable homicide, an offence punishable by death.

The prosecution counsel, Sabiu Adamu Gumba, told the court that Ali lured his kid brother into the bush and used a big stick to hit him, killing the victim instantly, after which he cut off the boy's penis and gave it to his dog.

Gumba said that in a confessional statement by the accused, he confirmed that he killed Yusuf due to the misunderstanding between him and the mother of the deceased, adding that he knew what he was doing as he was not under the influence of any intoxicant while committing the offence and the deceased did not engage him in a fight during the incident as he fell and died instantly.

The father of both the accused and deceased, Aliyu Shehu, who testified in court, said that the deceased was sent to the market by his mother on the day he was killed, to buy detergent only for him to be lured by the accused into the bush.

In his judgment, Justice Sambo ordered that the accused be hanged on the neck until he was certified dead.
