A witness , Malam Sulaiman Sabo, who is the leader of Kaduna butchers, said he had tried on so many encounters with the couple, but to no avail. he said; “I have sat them down much time to settle them, at my presence they oblige and forgive each other and promise to live in peace. After every meeting with them, bad news follows on the same issues I tried to settle between them, all of them are my neighbors and Adamu’s father is a butcher under my leadership, I tried my best but it’s not working out,’’
After Judge Murtala Nasir had listened to arguments from all parties, the case was adjourned to September 30 for the complainant to bring the N40, 000 she received as bride price for judgment.
