A man who killed nine women in a case that caused outrage in Nigeria has been sentenced to death in the southern city of Port Harcourt.

Prosecutors say 26-year-old Gracious David-West strangled his victims in hotel rooms across Nigeria between July and September 2019.

Justice Adolphus Enebeli said he is to die by hanging.

The death penalty is not commonly carried out in Nigeria – the last three executions were in 2016.

One of his victims survived the attack, but was not a witness during the trial. Authorities say her whereabouts are unknown despite being told not to leave the state.

The judge found him guilty of attempted murder on that charge.

Police say he also confessed to the murders of six other women elsewhere but he was not charged for those murders for lack of evidence.

Women With Irregular Periods More Likely to Die Before 70, Study Suggests

Embargo 00:01 hours UK time on Thursday 1 October 2020

Women with irregular or long menstrual cycles may be more likely to die prematurely when compared to those who have regular or short cycles, according to a study.

Participants who said they always had irregular periods were more likely to pass away before the age of 70, or prematurely, than those who had very regular cycles, the findings published in the journal The BMJ showed.

Irregular and long cycles in adulthood were linked to a higher risk of dying of cancer or cardiovascular disease, but the link was strongest for the latter.
