A 50 year-old woman, Binta Mohammed was on Wednesday arraigned before a Kaduna Sharia Court, Magajin Gari for allegedly initiating a 12-year-old girl into witchcraft.

According to the prosecutor, Haruna Ibrahim and one Amina Kawu, of house No. B29, Rock Road, Tudun Nupawa, Kaduna had on November 9 reported to the police that her house help, Jummai Monday, had been reportedly initiated into witchcraft through fish sometimes in September.

Ibrahim further revealed that the house help had mentioned her members as Binta Mohammed, alias Mama Shehu and Adebowale Ajami of Ribadu Crescent, Tudun Nupawa, kaduna.

The prosecutor said the complainant told the police that her house help had informed her how members had been persuading her to bring Sultan Aminu, one of her sons for them to be killed.

He said since then, the son has been critically ill and had been behaving strange, stressing that the offence contravened Section 216 (a)(b) of the Penal Code.

The accused, Binta, however, pleaded not guilty of the charge.

After the hearing, the Presiding Officer, Malam Usman Ibrahim, adjourned the case to Nov. 20, for the witnesses to testify.
