  • The owner, Malam Yusuf, was allowed to keep the cockerel until Good Friday for a family feast but was warned against letting it disturb residents.
  • The case shows how important it is to think about what the community needs and how pet owners should make sure their animals don’t bother their neighbors. 

KANO, Nigeria (Mandy News) – In an unusual ruling, a Kano State court in Nigeria ordered a man to kill his cockerel after a neighbor complained that the bird frequently disrupted his sleep.

According to the Daily Post, the neighbor lodged a complaint with the court, stating that the cockerel’s loud crowing disrupted the neighborhood’s peace and deprived residents of their well-deserved rest.

Magistrate Halima Wali heard the case on Tuesday and declared the cockerel a nuisance.

The owner of the cockerel, Malam Yusuf, explained to the court that he had purchased the bird to celebrate Good Friday.

He requested permission to keep the bird until the Christian holy day before slaughtering it for a family feast.

Judge Wali agreed with Yusuf’s argument, but he told him in no uncertain terms not to let the cockerel roam free and bother the people who live in the area.

The judge also asked Yusuf to make sure he slaughters the bird on Friday, as promised, or face a penalty from the court.

The decision shows how difficult it can be to live in a diverse community, where people have different customs and traditions that can sometimes cause problems.

It is not the first time that disputes involving animals have reached the courts in Nigeria.

In the past, there have been times when pet owners got in trouble with the law because their pets did things like make too much noise or damage property.

The Kano court’s decision reminds pet owners that it is their job to take care of their animals and make sure they don’t bother their neighbors.

Some people might think the case isn’t important, but it shows how important it is to think about the needs and rights of everyone in the community.

Even when it comes to something as seemingly small as a noisy chicken, the court’s decision shows a commitment to upholding the law and keeping peace among residents.
