Popular Kannywood Actress, Hadiza Gabon has denied knowing the 48-year-old man who sued her for refusing to marry him after spending N396,000 on her.
The civil servant, Bala Musa, told a Sharia court in Kaduna state that he had been dating the actress for a while and she promised to marry him.
According to him, he doesn’t hesitate to send her money whenever she requests for it and has spent N396k on her so far.
Bala also said he invited her to his home in Gusau, Zamfara, but she failed to show up after all the arrangements he made to host her.
However, in court on Tuesday, June 14, the actress said she has never met the man in her life and had no relationship with him.
Her lawyer, Barrister Mubarak Sani Jibril, who spoke on her behalf said the actress has denied all the allegations levelled against her.
“After hearing his allegations, she actually gave her own response which of course according to her, she has never met him, she never knew what happened. He met her on Facebook purportedly owned by her, so, we don’t know anything about that; we have no business with that, we have heard of him, we will allow the court to decide.” Mubarak said.
It was further discovered that Bala met the actress on Facebook and had been chatting with her via the social media platform.
“They met on Facebook, from there they became friends and the lady promised to marry him and he started spending money on her. She denied knowing him, but we have informed the court that we are going to bring witnesses on that,” Bala’s legal representative said.
Thereafter, the actress was granted bail with the condition to provide two reliable sureties residing in the state, and the case was adjourned to June 28th.
