A 30-year-old businessman Umar Aliyu on Friday dragged Fatima Aliyu, a commercial sex worker, before a Sharia Court in Magajin Gari, Kaduna for allegedly stealing his Samsung cell phone worth N80,000.
The nominal complainant also filed a suit against two men, Muhammad Tukur and Imran Tukur for allegedly conspiring with Ms Aliyu to commit theft.
The Prosecution Counsel, Ibrahim Shuaibu, told the court that the complainant requested for the service of Ms Aliyu and they agreed on N10,000.
He said that the complainant transferred to Muhammad’s account and took off with his phone.
Mr Shuaibiu said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 59, 142 and 271 of Kaduna State Penalty Code.
The defendants pleaded not guilty.
The judge, Murtala Nasir, admitted the defendants to bail on the condition they provide a reliable surety.
The judge adjourned the matter until Sept. 21 for ruling.
