A housewife, Zainab Abdulsalam, on Monday begged dragged her husband, Mansur Sulaiman before  a Sharia Court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, seeking to know her marital status.

Abdussalam, through her counsel, MT Abdullahi, told the court that his client has been living with parents for seven months.

Responding, Sulaiman, a civil servant said:”I did not divorce my wife. ”We are still married. I have continued to provide for her  while she was at her parents’ house.

”My rent will expire in July 2022 and I will not want to waste money. I asked her to look for a house where I  can afford but she  went for an expensive one that I cannot afford to pay,” he said.
