A man has been charged to court for headbutting his friend and killing him in the process

Inegbenoise said that on the way to the hospital, the deceased changed his mind and insisted that he be taken home, which they did.

A 28-year-old man, Daniel Peter, on Thursday appeared before a Jos High Court charged with headbutting his friend, Yakubu Abre, which resulted into his death.

Peter, a resident of Angwan Wakili, Tudun Wada in Jos, was accused of culpable homicide, an offence the police prosecutor, Mr E. I. Inegbenoise, said contravened section 222 of the Penal Code Laws of Northern Nigeria.

The accused used his head to hit his victim who fell on the ground and hit his head on a stone. He died a few days later. The offence was committed on Dec. 21, 2016,” he told the court.

He alleged that during police investigation, the accused, in a confessional statement, said that during a mild scuffle, he headbutted the deceased which sent him crashing on the ground, hitting his head on a stone.

The prosecutor quoted the accused as saying that he alerted others with whom he rushed Abre to a clinic in Tudun Wada from where they were referred to the Plateau Specialist Hospital.

Inegbenoise said that on the way to the hospital, the deceased changed his mind and insisted that he be taken home, which they did.

The prosecutor further quoted the accused as saying that he visited the deceased the next day but that when he returned home, he was told that he developed complications and was rushed to the hospital where he died.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the judge, Justice D.D. Longji, who did not take Peter’s plea, adjourned the matter until July 21, for hearing.

He ordered that the accused should be remanded in prison custody.
