The Shari’a Court 2 Sabon Gari Zaria has sentenced one Rabi’u Ibrahim of Infuser Godo to rhree years imprisonment or a fine of N60.000.00 for impregnating one Zaliha Hussaini.
Delivering the Judgement, the Shari’a Court 2 Judge Malam Shitu Umar said the Court found Rabi’u Ibrahim guilty on three count charges, one of which is for going into relationship with Zaliha without their parents knowledge.
Also Rabi’u deceived Zaliha to come and greet him as he was sick which he accomplished his mission by having sex, which resulted to the pregnancy and subsequent delivery of a baby boy.
The third charges is the N15.000.00 given by Rabi’u’s parent to use for aborting the pregnancy which was deposited as evidence. The judge asked if Rabi’u Ibrahim is not responsible for the pregnancy why should his parents give money to abort it?
It would be recalled that Rabi’u Ibrahim approached the court claiming deformation of character against Zaliha, claiming that he is the owner of the baby she delivered.
In his remarks on the judgement, the defence lawyer, Barrister Khalil Kabir Mantissa said, even though the judgement is in their favour, they will still press further for more claims against Rabi’u Ibrahim.
