A beggar on Tuesday, Binta Umar dragged Hajara Kano, a fellow beggar in Magajin Gari, to Sharia Court for alleged assaults and robbery.
According to Binta, Hajara keeps stealing the alms given to her in charity. She claimed that she hit her and threw her into the gutter when she confronted Kano on the issue.
The plaintiff begged the court to give her justice and punish Kano for what she was doing to her.
However, the defendant was not present to reply to the accusations. Musa Sa’ad-Goma, Judge, said the defendant disobeyed the court, not appearing in violation of Section 300 of the Criminal Penal Code.
The Judge ordered the defendant’s immediate arrest and postponed the case until 19 March.
