A Kano state court has ordered the killing of a cockerel in the state for constituting noise pollution.
The ruling was given by the court after a man complained that the chicken owned by his neighbour has been depriving him of sleep.
The court ordered the owner of the chicken to kill it before Friday, March 7, 2023.
Magistrate Halima Wali on Tuesday heard that Malam Yusuf’s bird deprived the neighbourhood of their deserved rest and declared the cockerel a nuisance.
Judge Wali heeded to his plea but warned him against allowing the fowl roam the area and disturb residents.
She also asked him to ensure he slaughtered the bird on Friday as promised, or face a penalty from the court.
