A 34-year-old woman identified as Zainab Ibrahim has been sentenced to six months imprisonment by a Sharia Court sitting in Rigasa, Kaduna for setting ablaze a house belonging to the new wife of her ex-husband.

Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Sambo Maigari narrated to the court that the offence contravened the provisions of sections 174 and 373 of Shari’a criminal procedure.

He said that the convict confessed that she used petrol to burn the new bride’s house out of jealousy.

In her plea for mercy, she claimed that she was an obedient wife to her former husband until he divorced her to take another wife.

He had promised to bring me back to my matrimonial home but did not after I served him and his parents for many years.

“The house belongs to me and my seven children,”
she said.

The Judge, Malam Salisu Abubakar-Tureta sentenced Ibrahim after she pleaded criminal trespass and mischief by fire.

The judge, however, gave the convict an option of N10,000 fine.

Abubakar-Tureta also ordered her to pay N131,000 as compensation for burning some household items belonging to Maryam Ramalan.
