Court sends 107-year-old woman to prison

Furera Abubakar

A Kano Chief Magistrates’ Court, has ordered 107-year-old herbalist Furera Abubakar, and Isah Hassan, 17, to be remanded in prison for allegedly plucking out the eye of a 12-year-old.

The Prosecution counsel, Mr Lamido Soron-Dinki, told the court on Wednesday, that the defendants committed the offence on March 19, at Rimin Hamza Quarters, Tarauni Local Government Area of Kano State.

Abubakar and Isah, both residents of Dantsinke Quarters, Kano, are standing trial on a two-count charge bordering on criminal conspiracy and attempt to commit culpable homicide.

Soron-Dinki alleged that Isah, the first defendant, was ordered to bring a human eye to be used in preparing an “appear and disappear” charm by the second defendant, Abubakar.

He said about 9:00 p.m on March 19, the defendants conspired, deceived and lured Mustapha Yunus to a nearby stream and plucked out his right eye with a sharp knife.

“As a result, the victim sustained grievous hurt and was rushed to Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital, where he was admitted for treatment.”

The plea of the defendants was, however, not taken.

According to the prosecutor, the offences contravened the provision of sections 97 and 229 of the Penal Code.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Muhammad Jibril, subsequently ordered the remand of the defendants in a correctional centre.

Jibril adjourned the matter until April 11, for further mention.

Man gets to positions of power and authority and bring to bear their inner qualities. Position, as we have it here, is used to do all sorts of things; good and bad. But mostly and vexatiously, position blinds us as we use it to cheat and deny others their rights.

I was looking for the "electric
