14-year Old Kano Child Bride, Faces Death Penalty For Allegedly Killing Husband by clara472: 1:14pm On Nov 29, 2014
The father of a 14-year-old child bride who allegedly murdered her husband said Thursday he was appealing to a Nigerian court to spare his daughter from being sent to the gallows.

Wasilat Tasi'u is on trial for the murder of her 35-year-old husband, Umar Sani, who died after eating food that Tasi'u allegedly laced with rat poison.
"We are appealing to the judge to consider Wasilat's plea," her father, Isyaku Tasi'u, told The Associated Press on Thursday.

On Wednesday witnesses told the High Court in Gezawa, a town 60 miles outside Nigeria's second largest city of Kano, that Tasi'u killed her husband two weeks after their wedding in April. Three others allegedly died after eating the poisoned meal.

The prosecution, led by Lamido Soron-Dinki, senior state council from the Kano State Ministry of Justice, is seeking the death penalty.

The case calls into question the legality of trying a 14-year-old for murder under criminal law and the rights of child brides, who are common in the poverty-stricken, predominantly Muslim northern Nigeria region.

"She was married to a man that she didn't love. She protested but her parents forced her to marry him," Zubeida Nagee, a women's rights activist in Kano, told AP. Nagee and other activists have written a letter of protest to the Kano state deputy governor.

Nagee said Tasi'u was a victim of systematic abuse endured by millions of girls in the region. Activists say the blend of traditional customs, Islamic law and Nigeria's constitutional law poses a challenge when advocating for the rights of young girls in Nigeria.

Justice Mohammed Yahaya adjourned the court until December 22. Tasi'u is in state juvenile custody.

This is a case of Juvenile/minor. Such things happen when a minor is forced into marriage for exchange of money. This serves as an eye opener to old men seeking to marry a minor. As for the death sentence on the part of the girl, I believe it is inappropriate since, ab initio the girl was not ready for the said marriage.

Our Judicial system, the police and army are now controlled by Emperor Jonathan, so nothing works again. There is no reason she should not be given justice under the Juvenile law.

Nonsense,death penalty for what
How will u force a 14yr old girl to marry a 35 yrs old man You already sentenced her to death cause she'll be unhappy for life. What is more frustrating than being forced into marriage at a very young age?? At 14 her life is yet to start and you r forcing her into marriage. I would do the same if I were in her shoes and she's still underage so the death sentence cannot apply to her angry

So,finally they've decided to kill this little girl?A girl that ought to have been protected by the law is about to be killed by misinterpretation of the law.
She committed a serious offence but two wrongs don't make a right.I'm not a good human activist but... cry
