Must read

Paul Owne, the mastermind of the Kano missing 9 children, has been sentenced to 104 years imprisonment, for stealing and selling the children in far away Anambra State.

Passing the judgement, the Kano High Court judge, Justice Zuwaira Yusuf, sentenced Paul to 104 years in addition with the fine of the sum of N100,000 for conspiring among his 6 others accomplices to kidnap many children who were under 10 years from kano and sold them at Onitsha in Anambra State.

Justice Zuwaira sentenced the convict after he pleaded guilty to all the 38 count charges slammed against him by the Kano State Government.

Delivering the judgment, Justice Yusuf categorised the offences into three and at the end slammed the sentence on him.

In the first category, the court upheld that the convict was found guilty of count 2, 8, 9, 27, and 34. She convicted him to 7 years each without option of fine in addition with the payment of the sum of N100,000.

Similarly, the court found Paul guilty of count 3, 5, 10, 11, 22, 28 and 38 and was sentenced to 7 years in prison.

While in the last category, Justice Yusuf said the action of Paul was in contravention of count 4, 12, 13, 29, and 38. She, therefore, convicted him to 4 years in prison for each count without the option of a fine.

She ordered that all the counts run conservatively.

The convicted person was arraigned before the court alongside his 5 other defendants who pleaded not guilty to all the charges read to them. They are Ogbono, Emanuel Igwe, Loise Duru, Monica Oracha, Chinelo Ifedigwe.
