Business woman drags customer to court over N11,700 debt.

Kaduna, March 4, 2019(NNN) A business woman, Gaje Abubakar, on Monday dragged one of her customers, Hindatu Mai-gyada, to a Sharia Court in Magajin Gari, Kaduna, for allegedly refusing to pay N11,700 owed by her.

Abubakar, who resides at Unguwan Rimi area of Kaduna, said that she sold groundnuts worth N11,700 to the defendant based on an agreement that she would pay after she had resold the groundnuts.

The complainant told the court the defendant reneged on the agreement for almost 12 months.

Besides, she said Mai-gyada had stopped buying groundnuts from her.

In her defence, Mai-gyada said she was aware of the amount and had the intention of fulfilling the agreement.

She told the court that her brother was, however, in court to pay the debt.

The Judge, Malam Dahiru Lawal, ordered that one Adamu, who is her brother, should be brought forward.

Adamu promptly paid the N11,700 to the court and another N3,000 being the court expenses incurred by the complainant.(NNN)
