The alleged father of the baby denied having sex with Amina, so the charges were dropped.
It only takes the man's word to exonarate tha man of having commited adultery unless exists 4 male eyewitness of good reputation that testify against the man. However the punishment for the women is different, they cannot be exonarated. The fact to be pregnant without being married is proof enough to be sentenced.
To get pregnant outside the marriage is proof enough to be condemned for adultery in Nigeria according to the new laws of the muslims, based in the Muslim Law (Shar'ia) who is applied in Nigeria.
There are websites of Amnesty international where people around the world can sign to condemn this horrible punishment and try to save Amina from that punishment. Share this with as many people as you know.
I cannot believe this kind of things still exist on this earth. How sad!!!
