Popular Hausa political singer, Dauda Kahutu Rarara, has told a High Shari’ah Court in Kano State to dismiss the case filed before it against him.
A businessman, Muhammad Ma’aji, is accusing Rarara of non-payment of money amounting to over N10 million.
The case resumed hearing on Tuesday before the court sitting at Rijiyar Zaki presided over by Justice Halhalatul Khuza’i Zakariyya.
Counsel for Rarara, G. A. Badawi, told the court that the suit has no basis and therefore should be disregarded.
He said they had served their response in writing to the complaints and the court, but the prosecution claimed that they got it late when the court was about to sit.
The complainant, Ma’aji, told the court that he has all the evidence documented in writing to support his claims since the beginning of his business relationship with Rarara in 2021, but has not received any payment.
Justice Halhalatul Khuza’i Zakariyya ordered the prosecution counsel to reply to the defence counsel and the court also in writing.
Justice Zakariyya adjourned the case to May 12 for further hearing.
