A Shari’a Court in Magajin Gari, Kaduna, on Tuesday, sentenced two ladies Farida Taofiq and Raihana Abbas to two months in prison each for wearing skimpy dresses.
NAN reports that Taofiq and Abbas, who reside in Argungu road in Kaduna, were convicted after they pleaded guilty to “constituting public nuisance and indecent dressing.”
They however pleaded for leniency saying they will not repeat the crime.
The judge, Musa Sa’ad-Goma, however, gave the convicts an option to pay N3,000 fine each and ordered them to return to their parents’ homes.
Aliyu Ibrahim, the Prosecuting Councel, had earlier said that Taofiq and Abbas were arrested on April 16, at a black spot along Sabon Gari road roaming the street in skimpy dresses.
“When they were asked where they were going, they said they were going to the house of a friend who had just put to bed,” the prosecution said.
Ibrahim said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 346 of the Sharia Penal Code of Kaduna State.
