Five kidnappers to die by firing squad in Adamawa

A Yola High Court has sentenced four kidnappers to death.

The convicts, Gambo Musa, Mana Musa, Abdu Baba and Mohammed Muazu (who
died in custody), were found guilty of abduction and armed robbery.

The convicts were said to have robbed and abducted the Adamawa House

a retired civil servant, Wilson Gundiri.

Delivering judgement, the judge, Abdul-Azeez Waziri, gave the convicts
10 years each for conspiracy to commit abduction and death sentence
for armed robbery.

Waziri said their deaths will be effected by hanging or firing squad.

and Jari Sabagi of Demsa Local Government Area of Adamawa were found
guilty of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide.

They killed a herdsman and dumped his body into a river in Kadomon
