A 23-year-old drug addict has been remanded in prison for beating and stripping his sister naked.
A 23-year-old man, Isah Idris, known to be a drug addict, has been arrested and charged before a Grade A Sharia Court in Kano State, for allegedly beating his younger sister, Rukayya, and stripping naked in public.
It was gathered that Idris was under the influence of drugs when he pounced on his blood sister and beat her mercilessly before stripping her naked over a minor disagreement.
The police prosecutor, Corporal Ahmed Magawata, told the court that the matter was reported at Zango Police Division in the city by the victim.
Magawata said that the accused, on January 7, 2016, beat up Rukayya and stripped her for stepping on his shoe while coming out of the bathroom.
"He beat the complainant, stripped her naked and injured her simply because she mistakenly stepped on his shoe," Magatawa said.
In his judgement, the president of the court, Abubakar Ayagi, ordered that Idris be remanded in prison custody after he pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal force contrary to Section 165 of Kano Sharia Law, preferred against him and adjourned the case till January 20, 2016, for sentencing.
