A Shari’a court in Kano on Tuesday, ordered that a 38-year-old man, Musa Sa’idu, be re-manded in a correctional centre for allegedly abducting and enticing his former wife, Fatima Ahmad.

Sa’idu, who resides in Ganjuwa LGA of Bauchi State, is charged with enticing a married woman and abduction.

The judge, Malam Nura Yusuf-Ahmad, who gave the order, adjourned the matter until Sep-tember 29, for hearing.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Mr Aliyu Abideen, informed the court that Alhaji Amadu Yahuza of Kunchi LGA  Kano, reported the matter at the Gama Police Division Kano on September 13.

He alleged that, “The defendant sent transport fare to his former wife and lured her to an un-known place in Bauchi State,” he said.

The prosecutor said during investigation, Ahmad’s phone was found in possession of the de-fendant.

The defendant, however, denied committing the offence.

Abideen said the offence contravened sections 270 and 312 of Kano State Shari’a Law. (NAN)
