A High Court in Yola, Adamawa State, has sentenced a man, Abubakar Mohammed, to death for killing his girlfriend for money rituals. 

Abubakar was said to have killed Christiana Augustin and removed her eyes and other body parts after he was told that he could make N10 million from someone looking for human eyeballs. 

Abubakar, a father of seven, reportedly met one Buhari Mohammed, who allegedly told him about a man who wanted human eyeballs. 

Abubakar went to Christiana’s House to get her to meet him at an uncompleted building where they usually met. 

There he took out his knife, slit her throat and plucked out her eyeballs. 

Abubakar was arrested the next day when the body of Christiana was found in the uncompleted building. 

The Adamawa State High Court sitting in Yola, presided over by Hon Justice Bulila Ikaro, sentenced Abubakar for culpable homicide after he was found guilty for being in possession of the human parts and tendering them for sale.
