Ibrahim Ismail was found guilty of eating during the Islamic holy month by an upper Shariah court in Ringim Local Government Area of Jigawa State.

The judge, Safiyanu Ya’u, ordered that the victim should be flogged 40 times in a market square to served as a deterrent to others.

The victim, Mr Ismail, was earlier arrested and prosecuted by the state Hisbah board (also known as the Sharia police) for eating a mango while other healthy Muslims are observing the Ramadan fast.

The flogging exercise took place at Ringim market square after a court official read before the public the ‘offence’ committed by Mr Ismail.

The court official stated that “the offender will receive forty lashes for eating mango in public as ordered by the judge.”

“People should witness the flogging and help count the lashes,” the official said.

Jigawa, like many states in Northern Nigeria, uses the penal code which takes a lot from the Islamic Shariah law. There are also Shariah courts and judges in the Northern states to implement the law.
