A Kano Magistrates’ Court yesterday discharged all the five suspects who allegedly killed an Igbo trader, Mrs. Bridget Agbahime, in Kano on June 2 over allegations of blasphemy.

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.

Mrs. Agbahime, 74, an Imo indigene, was murdered in Kofar Wambai Market in in the presence of her husband.

The Chief Magistrate, Muhammad Jibril, discharged the five suspects and terminated the case as advised by the Attorney-General of Kano State.

Earlier, the Principal State Counsel, Rabiu Yusuf, representing the Attorney-General of Kano State, told the court that they 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 and150 of the Criminal Procedure Code, then presented the legal advice,” Mr. Yusuf said.

“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.”
