A Daura Road Chief Magistrates’ Court in Kaduna on Monday ordered that a 55-year-old man, Zamani Inuwa, should be remanded in prison over alleged culpable homicide.
The Magistrate, Abdulkadir Musa, who ordered the remand of Inuwa, did not take his plea, but ordered that the case file be taken to the Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.
The Magistrate, however, adjourned the case until Nov. 28.
Inuwa, a resident of Akiru Village in Kachia Local Government area in Kaduna, is facing a count charge of culpable homicide.
Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Akinga Akila, had told the court that one Rage Kogi, a Village Head in Kachia Local Government in Kaduna State, reported the matter at Kachia Police Station on Oct. 10.
According to Akila, the accused used a stick and beat his mother, one Dallas Zamani, to death after an argument on the same date at about 10.00 am.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 190 of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, 2017.
