Man remanded for injuring pap seller who refused so sell on credit in Kano



A Kano State Sharia court sitting in Kiru Local Government Area has remanded one Jaafar Lukman, in a correctional centre for allegedly injuring the son of Jamila Mai-Kosai, who refused to sell pap for him on credit.

Lukman was also alleged to have poured away the woman’s bean cake, bean paste and pap she was selling at a junction in the State.

According to the police, the defendant went to the woman with the intention to buy bean cake and pap on credit, but the woman refused to give him because he owed her some money.

The police added that after refusing to give him the food, Lukman used his leg to kick the pap, bean cake, bean paste and the oil she was using for frying.

When the charges were read to him, the defendant pleaded guilty, but told the court that he was angry and hungry when he committed the offence.

The judge, Malam Usman Haruna Usman, who ordered that he be remanded in prison, adjourned the case to September 4.
