A 23-year-old woman, Firdausi Sulaiman on Monday dragged her husband, Haruna Haruna, before a Sharia Court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, seeking divorce on grounds that he beats her and says she eats too much.
In her petition, Suleiman, who lives in Rigasa in Kaduna, also told the court that her husband, Haruna, locks up the kitchen in the night.
”He banned me from receiving visitors in our marital house. He also beats me.
She prayed the court to terminate the marriage and give her custody of their one daughter.
In his defence, Haruna, a civil engineer through his counsel, M. K Mustapha, said his client is mentally okay and is not possessed.
The Judge, Nuhu Falalu, after listening to both parties, adjourned the case until Oct. 4.
He ordered Haruna’s counsel to invite the couple’s parents or guardians to explore an amicable solution. (NAN)
