Nigeria’s Supreme Court on Friday affirmed the death sentence passed on Usman Maigari, a former policeman, for killing his wife, Sa'adatu.

Delivering the judgment, the Justice said that the appellant's appeal lacked merit. “In conclusion, therefore, I have to state that this appeal lacks merit and I dismiss it. I affirm the judgment of the Court of Appeal which affirmed the decision, conviction and sentence of the appellant for culpable homicide punishable by death.
“I order that the sentence as passed by the trial High Court be carried out,'' she said.

Usman Maigari committed the offence on Jan. 11, 1999, at his house in Yabo, Yabo Local Government Area of Sokoto State.

Maigari had strangled his wife to death for ritual and later conveyed her corpse and dumped it in a culvert near Janzomo Village along Kanjiji-Shagari road, in Sokoto state.
