Lady Arrested, Remanded in Prison for Insulting Her Mother

Kano Senior Magistrate Court, presided over by Hajiya Umma Sani Kurmawa, has ordered a 20yrs old lady, Ummi Abdullahi to be remanded in prison for allegedly insulting her mother.

The charge sheet, read in court, said Ummi hurled verbal insult on her mother. It further noted that Ummi, on March 4, at Badawa quarters committed the acts of criminal intimidation, intentional insult, mischief and attempt to commit an offence.

Police prosecutor, Sergeant, Ibrahim Tsanyawa, said the offences committed were in contrast to the provisions of Section 397,327, and 95 of the penal code law.

According to him, the accused lady committed further offence by attempting to stab her biological brother with a knife, saying the brother had earlier stopped her from stealing a goat and a hand-push truck, belonging to the family.

Ummi proceeded to her mother’s bedroom, and knowingly set all the wares in the house on fire, the court was told.

The lady pleaded with the court for leniency, noting that she regretted her actions and pledged that she would not repeat the acts.

The prosecution, thereafter, applied for a summary trial of the accused.

Senior Magistrate Umma Kurawa ordered the accused to be remanded in prison custody and adjourned till May 16 for summary trial.
