Man Remanded In Prison For Allegedly Killing His Wife In Minna

On Tuesday, A Magistrates’ Court in Minna ordered the remand of one Ade Ilesanmi in prison for allegedly causing the death of his wife.
The Prosecutor, Sgt. Aliyu Malami, had told the court that one Blessing Kunle reported the matter at the A Division Police station in Suleja and Ilesanmi had pleaded not guilty to a count charge of culpable homicide, contrary to Section 221 of the Penal Code.
Malami said that the accused hit his wife, Patience, with his fist over a minor misunderstanding on Aug. 31 at about 9:30 p.m.
He said that the blow caused blood to gush from the victim’s ear, nose and mouth and she was rushed to General Hospital, Suleja, where she died.
The Magistrate, Murtala Ibrahim, declined to take his plea on the grounds that the court lacked jurisdiction to hear the matter. He then ordered the police to duplicate the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution for legal advice.
Then he  adjourned the matter until Oct. 31 for further mention.
