A wrestler in the Guyuk Local Government Area, Adamawa State, Thank-You Grim, has been sentenced to death by hanging for killing his wife, Kwalla Grim.
The wrestler, who was tried by the Adamawa State Chief Judge, Justice Nathan Musa, was sentenced after the court found him guilty of murder.
Justice Musa, while delivering his judgement on Tuesday, said, “The prosecution was able to prove with cogent evidence that the convict actually killed the deceased. Therefore, the convict is accordingly sentenced to death by hanging as provided by Section 192(b) of Penal Code Law.”
PUNCH Metro gathered that the convict, who hails from Sili community in the Guyuk LGA, caused the death of his wife on March 24, 2018.
According to court records, Thank-You “wrestled his wife to the ground and used pestle in smashing her face in a dreadful manner with the knowledge that her death would be probable of his act.”
According to records, the marriage between the duo was fraught with challenges before the incident that claimed Kwalla’s life on January 10, 2018.
After the couple ended their union, the victim reportedly fell in love with another man and decided to remarry.
She was said to have mounted pressure on the convict to divorce her.
It was gathered that Thank-You, who earlier rejected her entreaties, decided to agree and lure her to his house, only to plead with her to return to the marriage.
She was said to have refused his entreaties.
The convict, while testifying in court, said he was irked after Kwala disclosed to him that she charmed him.
He claimed that he did not know when he wrestled her to the ground and used the pestle to attack her.
Thank-You disclosed that he chased away some neighbours who attempted to intervene after they heard her cry for help.
According to him, he reported himself to the police at Chikila in Guyuk LGA on that day, where he told the police he murdered his estranged wife.
Reacting to the judgement, counsel for the convict, F. A. Ogbe, the Chief Legal Officer of the Nigeria Legal Aid Council, Adamawa State, appreciated the court for what he described as a well considered judgement.
Champions League: ‘They’ve No Excuse,’ Patrice Evra Names Club To Win Trophy
Manchester United legend, Patrice Evra, has backed Manchester City to win the Champions League this season.
Evra believes Man City have no excuse not to win the Champions League this season after adding striker Erling Haaland to Pep Guardiola’s squad this summer.
Haaland has scored 14 goals in 10 matches this season, three of them in the Champions League.
The Norway international joined the Premier League champions from Borussia Dortmund earlier this summer.
“He (Haaland) is a monster,” Evra told Betfair.
“He is using his physique, he’s a killer in front of goal, he does the right movements, he’s sharp for someone tall and strong. He’s like a cat.
“He got them back on track and that’s why he’s a number nine, and this is a real number nine. City were winning the league without a striker, but in the Champions League they struggled, now I feel like they have no excuse.
“When they lost that final against Chelsea, Guardiola decided to play without any striker, now this won’t happen again.”
Fury Casts Doubts Over Joshua Bout
Tyson Fury has spoken aggressively against former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and current champion Oleksandr Usyk in a fresh social media video on Friday insulting both boxers.
The WBC heavyweight world champion has fired back at the Ukrainian who this week accused him of being afraid of an undisputed title fight between them.
Usyk said concerning Fury, “Despite his toughness and how he is generally described, he is afraid. Yes, of me.”
The Gypsy King has also now claimed that he does not believe Joshua will sign the contract to fight him next on December 3 casting doubts over the possibility of the ‘Battle of Britain’.
Joshua agreed to all of Fury’s terms for the bout, and the sides are now going back-and-forth at contract stages with time running out to finalise a deal.
Fury ranted: “Usyk – you little s***house, you little s***bag.
“Talking s***e, I’m afraid of you? I’ll put my fist right through the side of you, you little sausage.
“And the other s***house, that big bodybuilder Joshua, that’s a proper s***house that it.
“Had the contract for I don’t know how long and ain’t signing it.
“You little sausage, you do not wanna fight, your manager’s a sausage.
“I’ve never seen anything like yous, both a pack of s***houses.
“However, I will be fighting December 3 if this sausage does not sign the contract, which I don’t think he is because I don’t think he’s got the b****cks to, because he’s a s***bag.
“Both of yous, a pair of little sausage s***houses.
“Joshua is a s***house, Usyk a s***house. Yous are all s***houses.”

Chelsea defender, Kalidou Koulibaly, has hailed manager Graham Potter as a real coach.
Potter was recently appointed as Chelsea’s new manager.
