A man was arrested on a charge of murder after being accused of killing his younger brother and feeding his manhood to a dog, police in Nigeria said.

Now, 27-year-old Salisu Ali of Zango, has been sentenced to death by hanging after being convicted of killing 7-year-old Yusuf Ali.

According to the police investigation, Salisu and Yusuf shared the same father, who was identified as Aliyu Shehu. On the day of the murder, Yusuf’s mother sent him to the market to buy laundry detergent, but he never returned home.

When his mother went outside looking for him, she was informed that Yusuf was seen with his brother Salisu. When Salisu was confronted, he admitted to luring Yusuf to a nearby forest, where he beat him with a baseball bat.

Salisu then cut off his brother’s manhood before feeding it to his dog. Salisu said that he didn’t like his brother Yusuf and his mother.
