Court dismisses Sheikh Abduljabbar’s Fundamental Rights’ case against Kano govt

A Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, dismissed a fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by the detained Islamic cleric, Sheikh Abdul-jabbar Kabara, against the Kano State Government.

Justice Emeka Nwite, in a judgment, dismissed the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/1201/2022 on the grounds that it was an abuse of court process, having filed similar matter before a FHC sitting in Kano.

Abduljabbar is standing trial before an Upper Shariah Court in Kano, on allegations of blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad.
