Sharia Court Orders Housewife to Pay Mate N50,000

A Sharia court in Kayan Maradun, Zamfara State, has ordered a housewife, Luba Mainasara, to pay N50,000 as compensation to her mate, Inno Mainasara, for beating her with a pestle.

Delivering judgement yesterday in Kayan Maradun, in Maradun Local Government Area of the state, the judge, Alhaji Sani Mohammed, sentenced Luba to 20 strokes of the cane and a fine of N3,000, in addition.

Mohammed said the convict got the severe punishment because she confessed that she committed the offence.

He advised Luba to fear God always and desist from committing such an un-Islamic act.
