 Jibrin Babaji

 Nigeria

44 years old

Sentenced to death by stoning


His story

Jibrin Babaji was sentenced to death by stoning by an Islamic court in the Nigerian state of Bauchi on September 25th 2003, the same day when Amina Lawal was finally released. He was accused to have made sexual abuses on payment against three under aged children. Jibrin confessed the crime after an interrogation by local policemen whose fairness could not be verified by anyone else. He has got 30 days to appeal against the sentence.

 

The appeal to save Jibrin

The Community of Sant'Egidio invites everybody to share its appeal aiming to spare Jibrin's life from a death sentence by stoning, sending the following statement to the competent authorities of Nigeria, as it occurred in the past, by fax or e-mail.
