Child Bride In Nigerian Pardoned After Been Convicted For Killing Husband

Kano child bride, Rahma Hussein, has been pardoned seven years after she was convicted for killing her husband.

The Child bride, Rahma, who was arrested at the age of 16 in 2014 and charged at a High Court in Kano for stabbing her husband to death a day after their wedding, was convicted in 2018 by Justice R.A. Sadik.

Justice Sadik ordered that she be “detained at the pleasure of the governor of the state,” because she was forcefully married and committed the offence at the age of 16.

Musbahu Kofar-Nassarawa, the spokesperson for the Nigerian Correctional Centre (NCoS) in Kano state, who addressed newsmen on Saturday, August 28, seven years after the incident, said young Hussein’s release was “based on the recommendation from the officials of the correctional centre who attested to her good behaviour.”

Kofar-Nassarawa further said that the officials also advised the state governor, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje to consider the circumstances that culminated in committing the offence and grant her pardon. He said the governor obliged the advice and granted her pardon.

Young Hussein expressed excitement after she was pardoned, thanking the committee, the governor and officials of the correctional centre for facilitating her freedom.

She said: “I’m grateful to the committee. The officials of the correctional centre, who recommended me to be a beneficiary of this gesture, may God reward you abundantly. I am also grateful to Governor Ganduje for his mercy on me. I am happy today.’’

Kano state’s Committee on Prison Reforms and Decongestion which played a role in the pardon also paid fines of inmates with options of fines, paid compensations, and released those in critical health conditions, including the elderly.

His copy was unmistakably dazed by the deed of Kuami Eugene and uncovered he has never seen such cash and contemplated whether it is legal to use in Ghana.

The presenters and panelists on the show all applauded and communicated appreciation to Kuami Eugene for what he did.

BREAKING: South Africa’s Final Apartheid-Era President Dies Age 85

FW de Klerk, the former president of South Africa and the last white man to lead the country, has died at the age of 85.

Mr de Klerk, who was also a key figure in the nation’s transition to democracy, had been diagnosed with cancer this year, a spokesman said.

Mr de Klerk was head of state between September 1989 and May 1994.

In 1990 he announced he was releasing anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela, leading to multi-party polls in 1994.

A statement from the former president’s FW de Klerk Foundation on Thursday morning read: “Former President FW de Klerk died peacefully at his home in Fresnaye (Cape Town) earlier this morning following his struggle against mesothelioma cancer.”

The foundation had announced the diagnosis – a cancer that affects the lining of the lungs – in June this year.

FW de Klerk had taken over from PW Botha as the head of the National Party in February 1989 and the following year announced he was removing the ban on parties that included Mr Mandela’s African National Congress (ANC).

His actions helped bring an end to apartheid-era South Africa, and he became one of the two deputy presidents after the multi-party elections in 1994 that saw Mr Mandela become president.

Mali Parliament Vice-President Freed

Mali’s interim parliament vice-president has been freed, weeks after he was arrested for public order offences.

Issa Kaou N’Djim was arrested in October and a ruling on his case is expected in December.

He was accused of making “subversive remarks”, which were not disclosed.

N’Djim is a supporter of Mali’s President Assimi Goïta but is a critic of Interim Prime Minister Choguel Kokalla Maïga.

His lawyers had said his detention was illegal because of a parliamentary immunity.
