Sharia Court orders man to pay back N180,000 loan to ex-lover


business woman, Fatima Ismail, on Wednesday, prayed a Sharia court sitting at Rigasa, Kaduna to order her former boyfriend, Abubakar Shuaibu, to pay her N180,000 he borrowed from her.

Ms Ismail told the court that she loaned Mr Shuaibu N230,000 to repair his car and has so far paid back only N50,000.

She said that all efforts made for her former boyfriend to pay the balance failed.

On his part, Mr Shuaibu said his former girlfriend did not state whether the money she gave him was a loan.

“She does not like seeing me worried.

“Whenever she sees me in that state, she asks me to give me money,” he said.

He told the court that he does not have a job and promised to pay N20,000 monthly until the loan is fully paid.

The judge, Abubakar Salihu-Tureta, ruled that the defendant should pay N30,000 monthly starting from the first week of January 2023.
