Court Sentences Siyaka to Death for Murder of Ex-Lover Aisha Oyamine


The Kogi State High Court of Justice in Obangede has sentenced Mr. Siyaka Audu Obe to death by hanging for the murder of his ex-lover, Aisha Oyamine Aminu. The judgment, delivered by Justice Aminu A., was announced today and followed a highly publicized case that drew significant public and societal outcry.

Mr. Siyaka was accused of murdering Aisha, who was handicapped, on June 7, 2023, over a financial conflict. The case, given its complexity and human interest, underwent thorough investigation before being brought to court. Justice Aminu found Siyaka guilty of culpable homicide and stated that he has the option to appeal the decision within the next ninety days.

They described the judgment as well-deserved and encouraged their members to voice out any difficulties they encounter, reaffirming their commitment to defending their members’ rights.

The deceased’s aunt, Mrs. Musa, also expressed her heartfelt gratitude to God, the Association of People with Disabilities in Kogi Central, the general public, the state government, media organizations, and the judiciary for their support throughout the case.
