Popular Kannywood actress, Hadiza Gabon has told a Sharia Court sitting in Kaduna that her life is in danger.

The actress was reportedly dragged to court by a civil servant simply identified as Bala Musa for refusing to marry him despite spending 396,000 naira on her.

The actress has denied the complainant in a previous sitting.

The case was then adjourned from June 28 by the Judge following his wife's illness. He gave the complainant a later date to present his witness.

Speaking in the court, the accused, through her counsel, Barrister Mubarak Sani Jibril, said with the deteriorating security situation in the country, the actress was afraid of her safety.

According to him, they are worried every day the case comes up at court because she (Gabon) is usually sneaked out of the court.

“My security is important, her own security is important and security of other people is also important in the court including that of the complainant.

“My life is at risk, her life is at risk, the life of the complainant is also at risk. We wouldn’t know who is seeing the case on social media. The next thing you will start seeing people with guns here for kidnap. This is what we are concerned about not the case in the court,” he said.

The lawyer also called on the court to consider the safety of his client by approving her absence from the court hearing.

In his reaction, Counsel to the complainant, Barrister Naira Murtala, rejected the plea for her to be absent during hearing, saying the accused must always be in court.

On the safety of both the accused and the complainant, he said he may not object to their application on the safety of the client because the country is not safe for everyone but they need to put it into writing for him to study.

The Judge, Khadi Rilwanu Kyaudai, assured them that the court will consider the safety of both parties during the next sitting.
