A Shari’a Court sitting in Kano on Wednesday, January 4, ordered the remand of two brothers, Saifullahi Hamisu, Mujahid Hamisu and one Hassana Surajo, in a custodial centre for allegedly enticing a married woman.
The defendants, who live at Bachirawa Quarters Kano, are facing a three-count charge of aiding, abetting and enticing a married woman.
The Prosecutor, Mr Aliyu Abideen, told the court that one Abubakar Ahmad of Fagge Quarters Kano reported the matter at SCID Bompai Kano on Dec.22, 2022.

“The defendants pretended to be relatives of the complainant’s wife (Fatima Alhassan). As a result, the complainant discovered that the first defendant Saifullahi was enticing his wife and were chatting on WhatsApp. The said Saifullahi was the ex-boyfriend of the complaint’s wife.”
Saifullahi pleaded not guilty while the second and third defendants pleaded guilty to the charge.
He said that the offence contravened the Kano State Shari’a Law.
The court ordered that the defendants be remanded in a custodial centre.
