I’m too poor to settle N96,500 debt, man tells court

A debtor, Ibrahim Shua’ibu, on Wednesday, told a Sharia court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, that he was too poor to settle a N96,500 debt he owed one Malam Sule Usman.

Shua’ibu, through his counsel, A. I. Hamza, said he had been bedevilled with extreme poverty and would not be able to pay the debt.

The counsel, however, said the son of his client had agreed to pay the debt in instalments and urged the complainant to withdraw the case.

Hamza prayed the court to adjourn the case to enable both parties to agree on modalities for the repayment.

Earlier, the complainant, Usman, told the court that Shua’ibu sold a land belonging to some orphans placed in his care and squandered the money.

He said that only N45,000 out of N141,500 debt was paid by the defendant’s son, from February to date.

He told the court that, “We have written three agreements with Shua’ibu’s son since February where he promised to pay N50,000 monthly, but was unable to comply.”

He, therefore, prayed the court to recover the money in bulk and give it back to the orphans.

The Khadi, Malam Rilwanu Kyaudai, adjourned the case to August 15. (NAN)
