9 Brothers In Court Over Father's Will In Kaduna

Nine brothers on Wednesday, appeared before an Upper Customary Court in Sabon Tasha, Kaduna over their late father's will.

The petitioner, Bitrus Yohanna had dragged the other seven brothers to court claiming that they refused to abide by the Will their father had left behind.

Bitrus said, after their father died, one of his uncles, discovered the will.

He said, the father left behind two houses and farmlands in the village.

Bitrus said, the will left one of the bigger houses which had eleven rooms to the seven brothers, while the house with with 9 rooms was for him and his brother.

Ishaya Yohanna, the eldest son of the deceased and one of the seven respondents, explained to the court that the father had three wives, of which one had six male children, the other had two and the last woman had one child.

Ishaya, said, they objected to the Will because it  was ``unfair and not right'' that seven of them should share 11 rooms while only two people would take a house with nine rooms.

The Judge, Mrs Dorothy Inwulale, said since it was the first hearing and a sensitive matter she would not rule on the application.

She adjourned  the case to January 22, 2012 for continuation of hearing.
