Yusha’u noted that having listened to both sides, he convicted Anas for killing his friend.

He said, “Having listened to both sides, I hereby sentence the convict (Anas Dahiru) to death by hanging as enshrined in Section 221 of the Panel Code.”

Dahiru was convicted for murder a few months after one Anita Ofili, was arrested for allegedly stabbing her friend, Glory Okon, to death in her apartment at Greenville Estate, Ajah area of Lagos.

Confessing to the crime, Ofili revealed that she waited for 10 years to pound her flesh because the deceased snatched her then-boyfriend.

Her words: “Glory and I had been good friends for years, but she betrayed that friendship by snatching my boyfriend.
