Kano Court Frees ‘Killers’ Bridget Agbahime


A Kano magistrates’ court on Thursday discharged all the five suspects who allegedly killed Bridget Agbahime, a trader based in Kano.

The suspects, Dauda Ahmed, Abdulmumeen Mustafa, Zubairu Abubakar, Abdullahi Abubakar and Musa Abdullahi were slammed with a four-count charge of allegedly inciting disturbance, culpable homicide, joint act and mischief.

Agbahime, 74, an Imo indigene, was murdered in Kofar Wambai Market in Kano over alleged blasphemy.

The tragic incident occurred on June 2.
Muhammad Jibril, chief magistrate, discharged the five suspects and terminated the case in line with the directive of the attorney-general of Kano state.

Earlier, Rabiu Yusuf, principal state counsel, representing the attorney-general of Kano state, told the court that “we received the case diary from the police on June 8.”

“Having gone through the case diary, the attorney- general of Kano state evaluated the facts in accordance with sections 130 and 150 of the criminal procedure code.”

“The legal advice presented to the court, dated June 24, states that there is no case to answer as the suspects are all innocent and orders the court to discharge all the suspects.”

Abdulsalam Gambo, counsel to the suspects, commended the attorney-general for the judgement in the case.

The suspects and their families expressed gratitude to “Allah for the judgement and for their freedom”.
