The women’s groups want Mr Sani to be taken to court, to face a fine and a jail sentence.

“As a Muslim as I always say I consider God’s law and that of his prophet above any other law,” Mr Sani said.
“I will not respect any law that contradicts that and whoever wants to sanction me for that is free to do that.”
Ok then, let’s do that.
