A middle aged man, Bunu Ali Kime, has been charged before a Maiduguri High Court sitting in Borno State, for allegedly killing his ex-wife's husband several months after they had divorced, Daily Trust reports.

Kime, who was arraigned on a one count charge, had reportedly stormed the home of the deceased, Mallum Hajjami at Kimeri village in Magumeri Local Government Area of the state, in the wee hours of the morning and killing the husband of his ex-wife.

The charge sheet read to Kime went as follow:

“That you, Bunu Ali Kime, male of Ali Kimeri village of Magumeri, on or about 26th November, 2015, at about 0200 hours, at Ali Kimeri village which is within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, caused the death of one Mallum Hajjami.

You shot him with a dane gun on his right leg and began hitting him repeatedly on the head using the butt of the dane gun with the knowledge that death will be the probable consequence of your act and that you thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 221 (b) of the Penal Code Cap 102 Laws of Borno State.”

Kime, who denied the charge, insisted that the deceased married his ex-wife, which, according to him, was provocative.

The presiding judge, Justice Alkali Wakkil, ordered that the accused be remanded in prison custody and adjourned the case.
