The defendant also closed his case with two witnesses, including a Urologist Dr Abdullahi Abubakar.

In his testimony, the accused told the court that the late Ummukulsum attacked him with a knife.

“While I was defending myself, Ummukulsum bit me on my arm and finger and also injured me on my genital,” Frank said.

The defendant was alleged to have stabbed the deceased with a knife in her house at Janbulo Quarters Kano, on Sept. 16, 2022.

The offence, the prosecution said, contravenes the provisions of Section 221(b) of the Penal Code law.
