A housewife, Farira Isah has dragged her former husband, Abubakar Hamza, before a Sharia court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, over his refusal to feed six of their nine children.
Farira told the court that she got divorced from Hamza on August 3 and that a court had granted her custody of six out of the nine children they had together.
She requested a court order of child responsibility to her ex-husband, after he claimed he could not provide food for the six children in her custody.
The woman also requested that Hamzat be banned from coming to her house and that he pays the sum of N6,000 monthly for each of their nine children.
“Hamza told me that he cannot feed the six. I want the court to order him to take that responsibility by paying N6,000 monthly for every child and also to stop him from coming to my house every morning and night,” she said.
In his response, the defendant, Hamza, who resides in Kaduna, prayed the court to give him custody of the six children.
“I want to take care of them. I have three living with me. She is not capable of training them well,” Hamza said.
The Judge, Murtala Nasir, after listening to the parties, ordered the defendant to bring witnesses on his claims that his former wife cannot train their children.
Nasir ordered the defendant to stop visiting his former wife pending judgment in the case. He also adjourned the case until August 26.
