Danish man sentenced to dying in Nigeria

The 56-year-old man is sentenced for his denial of getting murdered his Nigerian spouse and their joint youngsters within the dwelling in Lagos in 2018.

The sentence, the dying penalty by hanging, could be appealed to the nation’s highest courtroom. According to the TV channel, no dying sentence in Nigeria has been carried out since 2017.

“Again, we would like to remind the Nigerian authorities in strong terms of Denmark’s distancing itself from the death penalty,” the Foreign Ministry wrote in an announcement to Ritzau.
