Shitu, residing at Sharada Quarters Kano, is standing trial on a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide.

The Prosecutor, ASP. Rufa’i Inusa, told court that one Nuhu Shuaibu of Kankarofi Quarters in Kano reported the case at the Kwalli Police Division in Kano on Jan. 25.

He said that on the same date at about 9.30 p.m., Shitu and one Khalifa of Wudilawa Quarters in Kano, now at large conspired and killed one Zubairu Nuhu.

“The two men armed with knife and screw driver, stabbed Nuhu, the complainant’s son in his lap and back.

“As a result, the victim sustained injuries and was rushed to the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital in Kano, where he died on Jan. 26 while receiving treatment."

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against him.

The prosecutor said the offences contravened sections 97 and 221 of the Penal Code.

The Chief Magistrate, Muhammad Jibril, ordered the remand of the accused in prison custody.

He adjourned the case to April 3 for further mention.
