The police prosecution officer, ASP Samuel Sule, asked for adjournment to conclude investigation when the case came up for mentioning.

The case was adjourned to November 4, 2020 following request by the police prosecution officer ASP Samuel Sule to enable conclusion of investigation.

The Magistrate, granted the appeal of ASP Sule as lawyers of the defence council did not object.

Also, three other accused persons were granted bail till 4/11/2020 when the case will be up for further mentioning.

Tafida was alleged to have committed the offence sometimes in 2017 but released the video three years after when the victim’s dowry had been paid and time fixed for her marriage.
