A man identified as Musa Okashatu Gobirawa has been remanded in a correctional facility by a Kano Shari’ah Court sitting at Gama PRP for issuing death threats to some elders.
The offence contradicts Section 227 of the Shari’ah Penal Code 2,000.
The accused was arraigned after a complaint was filed before the police division at Bachirawa by Muhammad Sani Hussain and Bashir Namoriki who are members of the Gobirawa community committee.
The case started when the members of the committee sat in a meeting and brought out a policy which triggered his anger for the threat.
The accused however agreed that he made the statements when the prosecutor, Aliyu Abidin Murtala, read out the charges levelled against him, adding that he was angered when the committee members said a plot of land was not his and were trying to take it away from him.
The judge, Mallam Nura Yusuf Ahmed, ordered his remand in a correctional facility and adjourned the case until January 11, 2024.
