August 26, 2016 – Wicked Housewife Who Killed 4-Day-Old Baby In Kano Faces Death Sentence As Sharia Court Remands Her In Prison Custody

A housewife, Barira Yusuf, on Friday appeared before a Kano Upper Sharia Court, for allegedly causing the death of a four-day-old baby.

The accused is being charged by the police for negligent conduct, an offence punishable under Section 96 of Kano State Sharia Penal Code Law 2, 000.

According to the First Information Report (FIR), one Badiyya Yusuf of Fafawa farunruwa village in Shanono Local Government area of the state, reported the matter to Shanono Divisional Police office on Aug. 14.

According to the report, the accused who is a co-mate to the complainant, allegedly carried the baby and allowed him to fell on the ground.

She said following the incident, the baby started bleeding from the mouth and later died.

Barira, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge, and the Khadi, Alhaji Faruk Ahmad, remanded her in prison custody till Sept. 5, when the case will come up for further mention.

The accused is likely to be the first woman to be put to death by a Sharia Law in Nigeria for murder.

    Whose baby was killed? If it is the accuse person’s baby, she might be suffering from some form of temporary insanity which sometimes afflict some women after childbirth. The condition is rare but known in medical circles and under the law. It is a pity but should be investigated.
    RIP to the innocent baby!

    An eye for an eye judgement. That’s fair enough.

    She is most likely suffering from post-partum depression, a mental condition that affects some women soon after giving birth. What normal woman carries a pregnancy for nine months, goes through excruciating pain of child birth and then deliberately harms her baby? She needs treatment, not Sharia law or death penalty. I would advice these people to adopt Christianity. There is forgiveness for those who truly repent of their sins. What purpose will killing her serve? God is merciful.
