By Chi Amaka (Umunna Tv)

A magistrate court at Gidan Murtalan Kano State, has on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, ordered Isyaku Shu’aibu, the owner of a noisy cockerel to slaughter it or face a penalty after two neighbours of the owner of the bird, filed a complaint with the court.

They claimed the bird’s relentless loud crows disturbs their sleep and the peace of neighbourhood.

One of the plaintiffs, Yusuf Muhammed, of Ja’en quarters of Kano’s metropolis told the court that the cockerel’s relentless crowing was an infringement of his right to a restful sleep.

While admitting his cockerel’s knack for loud crows, Mr Shu’aibu prayed the court to stay the judgement until Friday, April 7, 2023. He told the court that he had bought the bird to celebrate Good Friday and asked to be given until the Christian holy day before killing it for a family feast.

The magistrate, Halima Wali, hen ruled that Shu’aibu should cage and slaughter the bird on Friday or face a penalty from the court.
