Two women, Zayya Murtala and Zuwaira Hakiru, have been brought before a Magistrates’ Court in Kafanchan, Kaduna state, for allegedly accusing another woman, Hajara Yakubu, of being a fornicator.

The duo are standing trial on three counts of criminal conspiracy, criminal conspiracy to defame character and intimidation.

The offences run contrary to the provisions of sections 58, 371 and 376 of the Kaduna state Penal Code Law.

In a direct criminal complaint filed before the court, Yakubu accused the defendants of spreading falsehood that she was in the habit of fornicating with her fiance and that he would never marry her.

She also alleged that they threatened that something was going to happen to her, given that this was the holy month of Ramadan.
