On Wednesday, a businessman named Muhammad Inuwa submitted a petition to an upper Shari’a Court in Tudun Wada, Kaduna, seeking assistance to recover a rent of N2.6 million from one Fatima Muhammad.
The complainant told the court that he sold a house to the defendant in 2018 for N28 million, with a 1.8 million deposit.
“We agreed that she should pay the balance of 26.2 in installments by paying N750,000 yearly rent until she finished paying.
“But since 2018, she has not paid for the rent and later told me that she was no longer interested in buying the house,” he said
He asked the court to order the defendant to return his house and three years and six months’ rent.
The defendant, through her counsel, Zaid Umar, disputed the allegation.
Malam Iliyasus Umar, the judge, adjourned the case till January 11 to allow the complainant to present his witnesses.
