”Another man got her pregnant. She reported me to the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

”She told the NSCDC that I impregnated her but I know that I did not,” said.

In her response, Garba told the court that Solihu was responsible for her pregnancy and wanted to deny paternity.

The presiding Judge, Malam AbdulQadir Umar, told Garba to prepare for proof of claims, saying that she is in the right position to shed light on the case.

Umar said that the defendant should prove that Solihu was responsible for her pregnancy through a valid document or a witness or both ways.

He adjourned the matter until March 19.
