A woman, Hajiya Habiba Aliyu, has filed a civil suit before the Federal High Court, Kano, seeking N250m damages against a textile firm and five others for alleged infringement on the rights of her deceased daughter, Nafisa Aliyu.

Habiba claimed that the defendants used her daughter’s pictures and artworks on their textile materials without any permission.

She alleged that the defendants copied the artworks of her late daughter on Facebook and used them to attract customers.

Habiba, through her counsel, Aliyu Suleiman-Jatau, argued that selling, marketing, retailing and distributing of Mudatex Textiles Materials and products of the other four defendants with the artwork pictures of her deceased daughter infringed on her rights.

Other defendants in the suit are a Chinese national, Ms Ling Haiying; Hongkong Runda Textile Company Limited, Mudatex Brothers, Dan Kano and Sani Tahir.

The presiding judge, Justice Sa’adatu Ibrahim-Mark, adjourned the case till December 11, 2020, to hear the preliminary objection.
