The Upper Sharia Court, Kofar Kudu, Kano State, presided over by Ibrahim Yola, has fixed August 18, 2021, to allow the lawyers representing the state government to present its charges against Sheikh Abduljabbar Kabara.

The government prosecutors, headed by Aisha Mahmud, had on Wednesday prayed the court to allow the team to present full charges against the accused instead of the First Information Report he was earlier arraigned on.

She said, “We have additional statements concerning this case, hence we seek the permission of this court to give us additional time to bring them before it. 

 “We want to present charges before the court, because what is now before the court is the FIR. We seek an adjournment to August 25, 2021, to prepare the charges.”

The counsel for Abduljabbar, Saleh Bakaro, said the prosecutors were not prepared for the case even after the accused had been remanded for 12 days in the Kano Correctional Centre.

 He said, “It is now 12 days since the accused was brought before the court; it is sad that they have not prepared charges against the accused.

“This is evidence that they are not prepared for the case, especially as the accused is in detention; the court should take note of this.” 

 Bakaro later told journalists that Abduljabbar was arraigned before the Upper Sharia Court for alleged blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad and causing public disturbance.

He prayed the court to choose a better date not exceeding 14 days from the date of arraignment as provided by law, but the judge said it was at his discretion and fixed August 18, 2021.

 Yola ordered Abduljabbar to be remanded in the correctional centre until then.
