An Oyo State High Court sitting in Ibadan on Wednesday sentenced a 30-year-old man, Yusuf  Nasiru,  to death by hanging for  strangulating and hacking  to death a six-year-old girl.

Justice Eni Esan held that the evidence before the court proved  that Nasiru was guilty of murder.

Esan said the Prosecutor, Mr Abdualah Olawale, was able to prove the charge of murder against the accused.

“The accused is an evil man that deserves no mercy  for terminating the life of a six-year-old girl;  he deserves the full wrath of the law.

“He is hereby sentenced to death by hanging until he dies,’’ Esan said.

Olawale had earlier  told the court  that Nasiru committed the offence on March 12, 2014,  at Isale Awero, Moniya area of Ibadan.

He said Nasiru  had  picked up  the victim from a road close to her school and killed her.

“After the accused killed her, he cut her body into several pieces and put them   in a sack.

“The remains of the body were discovered after three days in the house of the accused in Moniya area of Ibadan after his neighbour noticed that  a  bad odour was  oozing  from his house,’’ he said.

Olawale said the accused ran away when he discovered that his neighbour had reported the matter to the police and was  later arrested in Sokoto State.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that  the convict, who was represented by Adewale Adesanya, was arraigned on a one-count charge of murder for contravening  the Criminal Code Cap 38, Vol II, Laws of  Oyo State 2000.

He had pleaded not guilty  and was remanded in Agodi prison until Wednesday’s conviction.
