Hamza Nuhu, a 35-year-old man, was today arraigned at a Kano Magistrates’ Court, for allegedly beating up and intimidating his wife, Fatima Hassan.

Nuhu, who resides at Bachirawa Quarters Kano, is facing a two-count charge of criminal force and intimidation.

The accused, however, denied the allegations leveled against him.

The Chief Magistrate, Muhammad Jibril, granted the accused bail in the sum of N200, 000 and two reliable sureties.

Jibril ordered that one of the sureties must be the Ward Head of Bachirawa Quarters Kano, while the second surety must be a blood relation and adjourned the case until May 24 for hearing.

Earlier, the Prosecuting Counsel, Insp. Pogu Lale, had informed the court that Fatima Hassan, of the same address, lodged a letter of complaint at Metro Area Police Command Kano, endorsed by a Magistrate Court on March 30.

He said that about one month ago, the accused who is the husband to the complainant beat her up without any reason and threatened to deal with her by all means till he sees her end.

The prosecutor said that the offences contravened sections 265 and 397 of the penal code respectively.

    Thank God that the world, especially the third world, is becoming aware of the danger of domestic violence (DV) and women are more vocal. Gone are the days when the man sees his wife as a chatel to be mistreated and beaten at will. Men who grow up seeing their fathers beat up their wives tend to grow up with the same pattern of behavior, with no respect for women. If you love your children, mothers, don’t stay in a marriage whereby the man beats you up, else your daughters will believe it is normal for a man to beat them up and your sons will grow up to be women abusers. There is nothing to be ashamed of in letting people around you know that your man is beating you up. In fact, the men who beat women need to be ashamed of their behavior and must be punished by the courts of law. Love is gentle and protective of those we care about. How do you sleep with a man who hurts you?
