[ Masterweb Reports: Yusha'u A. Ibrahim reports ] - Kano State government has dragged Habiba Inusa of Doguwa Gangare to court for given birth day after the mass wedding sponsored by government, the Director General of Hisbah Board, Dr. Abba Sifu has said.
Dr. Sufi told Daily Trust on Sunday that the woman was arraigned before a Shari'ah court in Doguwa local government area of Kano state for adultery and deliberate concealment of pregnancy respectively.
Consequently, he said, government had confiscated all the room furniture and other items earlier given to her by government during the mass wedding exercise.
"Habiba had confessed to the court that she was pregnant months before the mass wedding exercise. She told the court that she deceived the officials assigned to test the couples by given them her sister's urine during the exercise.
"She told the court that she went to the venue of the screen with her sister's urine which she concealed in her stomach and when it was her turn for the test, she presented her sister's urine in place of hers," he lamented.
Dr. Sufi added that the woman also confirmed that the pregnancy was for one Kamalu, not her husband, adding that "when the said Kamalu was invited, he confessed to have slept with the woman some months ago."
He said the court had also invited her parents for explanation over the unfortunate incident.
The DG said the woman is currently under the custody of the court in Doguwa local government area.
Daily Trust reports that one of the 1, 520 couples that were married off by the Kano state government last week under its mass wedding programme had given birth to a baby boy a day after the exercise.
