A housewife identified Shamsiya Muhammad, on Wednesday begged a Sharia Court ll, sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State to dissolve her six-year-old marriage with Sani Adamu.
Muhammad told that court that her reason for seeking divorce was because of Adamu’s refusal to pray, adding that she cannot continue with him.
The complainant also alleged that he does not care for her and always insults her parents whenever they have a misunderstanding.
“We got married six years ago and we have two children, he paid N40,000 as my bride price, I am willing to return back his money and free myself from the union as Islam guides us,’’ she added.
The defendant, Adamu who denied insulting his wife’s parents claims he prays five times daily.
Adamu also said that he loves his wife and prayed the court to give him more time to settle their differences.
Earlier, a witness, Malam Sulaiman Sabo, leader of Kaduna butchers, said that he had made several attempts to settle both parties so that their marriage can continue but to no avail.
“I have sat them down many time to settle them, at my presence they oblige and forgive each other and promise to live in peace.
“After every meeting with them, bad news follows on the same issues I tried to settle between them, all of them are my neighbors and Adamu’s father is a butcher under my leadership, I tried my best but it’s not working out,’’ Sabo said.
The Judge, Murtala Nasir, after listening to both parties and Sabo, adjourned the case to Sept. 30 for the complainant to bring the N40, 000 she received as bride price for judgment.
NAN reports that the case was adjourned four times at different sittings to enable Malam Sabo intervene but the wife still remained on her stands of seeking divorce.
