A Sharia court sitting in Magajin Gari of Kaduna State has ordered a teacher, Yusuf Yusuf, to end any kind of romantic relationship with his female student, Zainab Muhammad.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Inspector Ibrahim Shuaibu, told the court that Zainab reported to the police that her teacher had assaulted and injured her on September 5.
Shuaibu further told the court that following investigation, the police discovered that the teacher was in a romantic relationship with her and that he assaulted her because he saw her with another man.
The prosecution said the teacher had also injured Zainab in the face and her body in the ensuing drama after he saw her with another man.
