A Sharia Court, sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State on Wednesday ordered a teacher, Yusuf Yusuf, to end any kind of romantic relationship with his student, Zainab Muhammad.

The Judge, Malam Murtala Nasir, also ordered the teacher to pay N8,500 to the nominal complainant, Muhammad, as compensation to defray her medical bill after he assaulted her.

The Judge made the ruling following the result of an out-of-court settlement made by both parties.
