A mother of two, Altine Abdullahi, on Tuesday appeared in a Chief Magistrates’ Court, Kofar Fada Zaria for allegedly converting her home to a brothel.

The police charged Abdullahi and Mohammed Yasir with conspiracy, adultery and abduction, contrary to the provisions of sections 59, 230 and 368 of the Penal Code Law.

The Prosecution Counsel, Insp Abdullahi Sarki, informed the court that the police has concluded investigation into the matter and ready to continue with the case.

However, Magistrate Zainab Garba, referred the case to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Police in Kaduna for further investigation.

“I cannot understand how a minor can stand trial for adultery,” she said.
