Three men including a 70-year-old have been sentenced to d£ath by stoning by an Islamic Sharia Court in Ningi, Ningi Local Government Area of Bauchi State, which found them guilty of homos£xuality.

Trail of the convicts identified as Abdullahi Beti (30), Kamilu Ya’u (20) and Mal. Haruna (70), began on June 14, 2022 after being arrested by members of the Hisbah Vanguard operating in Ningi LGA through Adamu Dan Kafi.

They reportedly pleaded guilty to the charges brought against them. After hearing the statements by witnesses as well as admittance of guilt by the accused persons, the trial judge, Munka’ilu Sabo-Ningi, sentenced them to death by stoning.

He based the judgement on provisions of Section 134 of the Bauchi State Penal law of 2001 as well as the provisions of Fiquhussunah Jizu’i number 2 at page 362.
