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.
