Threat to life: Drama in court as complainant stands surety for defendant


A mild drama ensued in a Sharia Court on Monday as a former district head of Narayi, Kaduna State, Ibrahim Hamza, who allegedly accused a teacher, Muhammad Khalid, of threatening his life, stood as surety for him.

Hamza, 65, who lives at Hayin Malam Bello, Kaduna, dragged Khalid to court, alleging that he threatened to kill him and also defamed him.

Hamza told the court that the defendant also dragged his son, who is a minor  to a vigilante group , where he was beaten for stealing a cell phone.

The Judge, Murtala Nasir, admitted the defendant, after Hamza, begged for his bail.

Nasir adjourned the case until August 26 and ordered the defendant to produce members of the vigilante group for further hearing.

The defendant, who is  an Islamic teacher, however, denied the allegations.
