Man jailed for beating his mother
A Sharia court in Katsina has sentenced one 45-year-old Amadu Salele to jail for one year after finding him guilty of beating up his mother, Mariya Salele.
Amadu who was also flogged 50 strokes of cane, was given no option of fine.
The judge, Ibrahim Usman, said Amadu’s action ran contrary to sections 167 and 264 of the penal code.
According to an FIR on the case, Amadu used a steel object to beat his mother, causing her injuries, after his mother tried to correct some of his actions by talking to him.
He was arrested and charged to court when his mother reported the matter at the Katsina Central Police Station. He was charged with criminal intimidation, using force and assault.
