According to the police prosecutor, her first husband, Kabir Mohammed, lives in Jibiya, while her second husband, Shamsu Saulawa, lives in Katsina township.

“My Lord, anytime she wants to sleep with one of them, she will tell the other that she will be traveling to either Jibiya or Katsina,” the prosecutor told the court presided over by Alhaji Kabir Hamisu Bello.

Continuing, the prosecutor told the court that nemesis caught up with the woman when she quarreled with one of her friends, Hindatu, over a debt and the friend who was in the know, leaked the secret to her first husband, Mohammed.

"Mohammed who allegedly witnessed the quarrel, thought Hindatu wanted to paint his wife black and thus decided to sue her for defaming Amina.
