A businessman, Saidu on Wednesday dragged his friend’s ex-fiancée, Maimuna and one Hussaini before Magajin Gari Shari’a Court in Kaduna State over alleged criminal intimidation and defamation.
The complainant said through his counsel Muhammad Liman that the two accused persons had threatened to deal with him for separating his friend from Maimuna.
“Maimuna had been calling my client on phone, mostly at night since her break up with his friend. He warned her not to call him again but she resorted to name-calling and threats.
“The second accused person also called my client accusing him of coming between two lovers, saying he will make sure he sees my client’s end”, he said.
The counsel added that the threats made by the friend’s fiancee and the other person had made the complainant so afraid that he could no longer conduct his business in peace due to fear of the unknown.
He prayed the court to intervene in the matter and serve justice.
However, the two defendants, who live in the same neighbourhood as the complainant denied the claim, saying it was untrue.
The Judge Malam Muhammad Adamu-Shehu after listening to both parties asked the complainant to present his witnesses on December 4, the next adjourned date.
The judge fixed N30,000 bail for each of the defendants, who must also provide a reliable surety each residing in Kaduna.
