Justice Watch News recalls that Upper Shari’ah Court Judge Garba Hamza Malafa in Kano oversaw the administration of the oath of denial to Sai’d Muhammad after the prosecution counsel, Laraba Uba, informed the court that there were no witnesses and requested the defendant to swear on the holy Qur’an.

Following this development, Sai’d, represented by his legal counsel, Barrister Rabiu Shuaibu Abdullahi, filed a certiorari application at the state high court seeking his discharge.

During the hearing held on Tuesday, Barrister Abdullahi informed the court that all defendants had been served with the court processes and the case was ready for proceedings.

Despite objections raised by the Applicant’s Counsel regarding the adjournment, the presiding judge ruled in favor of an adjournment and rescheduled the hearing for May 2, 2024.
