Three men were on Wednesday sentenced to seven-month imprisonment with hard labour, by a Kano Magistrates’ Court for committing adultery.

The police charged Aliyu Yahuza, 20; Amir Rabi’u; 19, and Musa Gambo, 19, with criminal conspiracy and adultery.

Magistrate Farouk Ibrahim-Umar also ordered that the convicts be given 12 strokes of cane each for conspiracy.

Mr Ibrahim-Uamr gave them an option to pay N20, 000 each for adultery.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Auwalu Dandago, informed the court that the convicts committed the offence on November 13, 2021, at Kofar Waika Quarters Kano.
