The punch Newspaper reports that Justice Alloy Nwankwo handed down the sentence on Barugun after the prosecution had proven its case beyond every doubt that in February 2013, the convict had killed the victim during an argument by stabbing him in the chest and stomach with a dagger.

Barugun who at that time, was rearing his cattle in the area, was said to have trespassed on Nkwegu's land and when he was confronted by the deceased, he stabbed the victim to death.
