Nigeria Court of Appeal sitting at Jos, the Plateau state capital has sentenced Mr. Jibril Idrisa to death for killing his father over N56k.

He accused his father of not remitting the accurate amount of money realised from the sale of Guinea corn to him.
He was this year discharged and acquitted by a lower court; however, some of his family members appealed the judgment to the Court of Appeal which delivered pronounced judgment today.
Mr. Habib Abima, the justice of the Court of Appeal in a ruling, said there was a miscarriage of justice by the lower court and sentenced Jibrin to death by hanging.
Habib said Jibrin is guilty of culpable homicide punishable with death.
