A young man identified as Muhammed Zubairu has been arrested for the death of his teenage girlfriend, Miss Sane Fidelis.
Zubairu was charged with conspiracy and causing death by an act done with an intent to cause abortion which contravened sections 60 and 204 of the penal code law.
As sighted on Insablog9ja, the suspect admitted impregnating Miss Fidelis as well as causing her death while trying to abort the pregnancy.
It was gathered that he conspired with a friend and administered the drugs to the deceased in an effort to carry out a clandestine abortion where they ended up terminating her life.
After administrating the drugs with an intention of terminating the pregnancy, Miss Sane Fidelis developed some medical complications and subsequently died at the specialist hospital in Yola.
The defendant, who was arrested on November 14, 2021, told the court that he had s*x with the deceased on three occasions only and that when the girl approached him with the pregnancy, they supplied some drugs in order to terminate it.
