KADUNA housewife Shamsiya Muhammad has asked a Sharia court to dissolve her marriage to her husband Sani Adamu because he refuses to join her in observing the Muslim injunction of praying five times a day.
Earlier today, Shamsiya, who resides at Tudun Wada, Kaduna, begged a Sharia Court ll, sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State to dissolve her marriage. She said that she cannot continue with Adamu because he also does not care for her and always insults her parents whenever they have a misunderstanding.
Shamsiya added: “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.”
Adamu who also resides at Tudun Wada, Kaduna, denied insulting his wife’s parents claims he prays five times daily. He said that he loves his wife and prayed the court to give him more time to settle their differences.
Earlier, a witness, Mallam 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. He added: “I have sat them down many time to settle them and in 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 neighbours and Adamu’s father is a butcher under my leadership, I tried my best but it’s not working out,” Mallam Sabo added.
Court judge Murtala Nasir adjourned the case to September 30 for the complainant to bring the N40, 000 she received as bride price. This case has been adjourned four times at different sittings to enable Mallam Sabo intervene but the wife still remained adamant that she wants a divorce.
