The judgement was handed down to Usman by Chief judge of the state, Justice Nasir Ajana.

Justice Ajana found the minor guilty of culpable homicide brought against him, an offence under section 221 of the penal code.

The prosecution had told the court that the deceased, who resided at Emiworo in Ajaokuta area, told Usman not to graze his cattle on the farmland, saying chemical had been sprayed on the land and could harm his cattle.

“But as the deceased turned to leave Usman, he stabbed David at the back and ran away”; the prosecutor had said during trial.
