So Embarrassing: You Won't What Happened After A Man Called His Own Sister-In-Law A Prostitute



A Sharia court sitting  at Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, on Monday ordered  that one Shuaibu Umar be given 80 strokes of cane for calling his sister-in-law, Suwaiba Abdulkadir, a prostitute, NAN reports.

Abdulkadir,  who had filed a case of defamation  against her brother in-law,  told the court that Umar called her a prostitute after a misunderstanding they had.

“Shuaibu is my husband’s younger brother and  we had a misunderstanding; we exchanged words and he called me a prostitute.

“I want this honorable  court to grant me justice, as what my brother-in-law said about me has tarnished my image,’’ she said.

The defendant, who did not  deny calling his sister-in-law a prostitute,  added  that he spoke in anger and had no regrets.

“I was hurt when she called me a drug addict and a thief; that was why I called her a prostitute and I won’t go back on my words,’’ he said.

The judge, Mallam Dahiru Lawal, ruled that Umar be given 80 lashes of cane after giving him a chance to withdraw his statement, which he refused to do.

“The defendant confirmed calling his sister-in-law a prostitute and is  not ready to withdraw the statement;  therefore, I, Dahiru Lawal, rule that Shuaibu Umar be given 80 strokes of cane.

“This is in accordance with the teachings of Prophet Muhammad which state that one cannot accuse a person of adultery or fornication except he presents four witnesses who have seen the activity.

“He is to receive  80 strokes of cane in place of the person he accused, because he has defamed the person’s character,’’ the judge ruled.
