By Aisha Gambo
Kaduna, Feb 21, 2019 A young Businessman, Kabir Jibril, on Thursday, dragged his friend,
Shuaibu Jaafar, to Sharia Court ll sitting at Magajin Gari, Kaduna, over alleged breach of trust and cheating.

The complainant, who resides at Rido area of Kaduna, told the court that he and the defendant were business
partners in petrol, gas and Kerosene.

Jibril said “Shuaibu Jaafar is my friend and I trusted him so much  that was why I partnered with him in
the business; but he cheated me and my money is with him amounting to N972,000.”

He added that he had tried to get his money from Jaafar before coming to court but to no avail, praying to court
to get him justice.

However, the defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge, which contravened sections 159 and 168 of the Kaduna
State Sharia Penal Code when his plea was taken.

The Judge, Malam Musa Sa’ad-Goma, after listening to both parties, asked the complainant if he had any
witness and he answered in affirmative.

Sa’ad-Goma ordered that the defendant be remanded, pending when a reliable surety would
come for his bail and adjourned the case until Feb. 26.
