My husband cannot feed, maintain me – Woman tells court
A housewife, Aisha Mohammed, on Tuesday approached a Sharia Court in Minna seeking the dissolution of her marriage to her husband, Mohammed Shaba for not providing food in the house.
Mohammed also accused Shaba of failing to provide funds for her general maintenance for the past seven months.
“For the past seven months, my husband has not lived up to his responsibility of putting food on the table at home.
“He has also failed in providing for my general maintenance and I cannot bear it anymore.
“That is why I am begging this honourable court to bring the marriage to an end by doing the needful,” she said.
Shaba, however, denied his wife’s claims saying he had always done his best for her.
He maintained that he still loved his wife and would not want them to go their separate ways.
In his ruling, the presiding Judge, Ahmed Bima advised the couple to give peace a chance, adding that marriage requires a lot of patience and understanding.
Bima said that he would give the couple a chance to try and resolve their differences amicably’.
He, therefore, adjourned the case until May 21, for report of settlement. (NAN)
