Court orders arrest of Hausa films actor, Sadiq Sani Sadiq
The Sharia Court in Kano State has ordered the arrest of Hausa films actor, Sadiq Sani Sadiq.
It was reports that a filmmaker, Aliyu Muhammad Hannas, has filed a lawsuit against the actor, alleging that he paid the actor to make a film for him, but refused to get the job done.
The plaintiff also complained that Sadiq’s refusal to do the job had cost him dearly.
The judge, magistrate Adamu, said Sadiq had defied the court order despite being served with a summons, with the summons affixed to the wall of his house, but he refused to attend.
He then ordered the court officer to arrest the film star wherever he could be found and brought him before the court.
The court ruled that as soon as the actor was arrested, the trial would continue.
Speaking to reporters, Sadiq said it was not the filmmaker who gave him the money directly.
Sadiq added that N100,000 was owed as part of the contract fee for the film.
