A Sharia Court l sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, on Monday ordered that a housewife, Zainab Baban-Chalco be remanded in prison for allegedly calling her neighbour a b***ard.
Mrs Aisha Muhammad, 38, dragged Baban-Chalco to court for allegedly calling her ‘unprintable names’.
The Judge, Dahiru Lawal, gave the order for remand, pending when a reliable surety appears in court to bail Baban-Chalco.
Lawal adjourned the case until May 20 for Muhammad to produce her witnesses.
Earlier, Muhammad, who lives in Flour mills Area, Bypass Kaduna, told the court that she has had no peace since Zainab Baban-Chalco moved into their rented apartment.
“Every time we have disagreement, she calls me bastard. I am tired of the insults.
“When Baban-Chalco moved into my neighbourhood, I took her as a sister. I sometimes assist her by giving her loans and she pays me in instalments,” Muhammad said.
The defendant, Baban-Chalco, 35, pleaded guilty to the charges levelled against her.
Baban-Chalco also told the court that Muhammad calls her names and accuses her of having extra-marital affairs with men when her husband goes to work.
“She also calls my children illegitimate,” Baban-Chalco said.
