Mr. Lamido Sorondinki, the prosecution’s lawyer, claims Khalil committed the crime in Kano’s Karkasara Quarters sometime in 2019.

According to Sorondinki, the defendant kidnapped his sister’s son, Ado, and covered his nose and mouth with sellotape before burying him in a shallow grave near Sabuwar Sheka in Kano.

 

During the trial, the prosecution presented three witnesses and four exhibits before the court.

Despite the fact that the inmate denied any involvement in his nephew’s death, his lawyer, Barr. Aisha Abdulkadir, presented him as a lone witness and appealed for his clemency.
