2 months ago | 122


A 25-year-old labourer, Mansir Muhammad, on Tuesday appeared before a Kano Sharia Court for allegedly having weeds suspected to be Indian hemp in his possession.

Muhammad, who lives at Kofar Mata Quarters, Kano, is facing a two-count charge bodering on public nuisance and being in possession of Indian hemp.

The defendant, however, pleaded guilty to the charge.

The presiding judge, Dr Bello Khalid, ordered that the defendant be remanded in the correctional facility.

He adjourned the matter until Oct. 11 for fact and sentencing.

Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Mr Abdul Wada, had informed the court that the defendant committed the offence on Sept. 20 at Kwari Market, Kano.

Wada said that on the same date at about 6.00 p.m., the defendant was found in possession of five wraps of weeds suspected to be Indian hemp.

According to the prosecutor, the offence contravenes Section 341 of Kano State Sharia Law. (NAN)
