The Chief Magistrates Court sitting at Chediya GRA Zaria, Kaduna State has sentenced  a Zazzau palace guard and three others to one year imprisonment each or alternative of fine of N50.000 each.
Delivering judgment on Thursday February 23, 2023, the Chief Magistrate, Abubakar Lamido said, the court  was satisfied with the confessional statement made in the Police report which was admitted as exhibits.
He said the court  has not found the defendants with any criminal  case before any court of law, hence they are to serve  12 calendar months instead of 24 months in the correctional center or a fine of N50.000 each.
It would be recalled that the five men, including a dismissed palace guard, appeared before a Chief Magistrates’ Court in Zaria, Kaduna State, over alleged adultery and criminal conspiracy on Jan. 11.
The offences contravene Sections 59 and 368 of the Kaduna State Law 2017
