November 19, (THEWILL) – Hadiza Gabon, a Kannywood actress has instituted a defamation suit against a Kaduna State civil servant, Bala Musa and he was subsequently remanded. Hadiza claimed that the defendant’s false accusations against her had caused her to face a backlash from the public.
She added that people on social media called her a cheat who had refused to marry Musa after collecting his money, an allegation which was proven to be false. The Chief Magistrate, Shamsudeen Sulaiman, asked the complainant’s counsel if they had witnesses, and they answered in the affirmative. The Chief Magistrate granted bail to Musa with the condition that he should present two reliable sureties who were residents of Kaduna State and must be civil servants.
Musa had filed a suit against Hadiza at Shari’a Court l, Magajin Gari, earlier in the year. He accused the actress of refusing to marry him after he had given her N396,000. The actress had then denied knowing him saying she had never met or spoken to him before and had no relationship with him. However, the actress had insisted that she never requested funds from anybody. She cautioned her followers and fans to be careful not to fall into the trap of scammers.
