Gunmen kill five in Yobe

The Sun News : "A resident who lost his brother in the attack said he left behind the victim to take care of his business while away in Lagos on business trip. “I just got a call that my younger brother was killed, We spoke on phone few days ago. I don’t know what to do now because I’m in Lagos to buy goods and replenish my shop,” the man said on condition of anonymity. Police sources hinted that the perpetrators of the Friday attack in Geidam “might not actually be Boko Haram but armed robbers because the attackers also robbed their victims of their monies and carted away cartons of liquor being sold by their victims."

Court frees boy prisoner

The Namibian Newspaper: "THE High Court yesterday ordered the immediate release of a 12-year-old boy who became Namibia's youngest sentenced prison inmate after receiving a six-month jail term for housebreaking and theft at Karasburg in October.

In a review judgement handed down by Judge Elton Hoff, Acting Judge Claus Hinrichsen set aside the boy's conviction and sentence and ordered his immediate release from detention.

Judge Hoff agreed with Acting Judge Hinrichsen's decision, which was based on the principle that a child as young as the boy is presumed not to be criminally liable, especially where he had been involved in a crime while under the influence and instructions of a much older person.
The boy was sentenced to six months' imprisonment on October 19, after he had been convicted in the Karasburg Magistrate's Court on a charge of housebreaking with intent to steal and theft."
