Daughter Drags Father To Court For Refusing Her Marriage
Amina Hassan is 20 years old and ready for marriage, but she has been unable to fulfill her heart’s desire despite having found love.
Her father has refused to give his blessing and based on tradition, she cannot be married off without the man’s consent.
On Tuesday, October 16, she dragged her father, Hassan Adamu, before a Sharia Court at Magajin Gari, Kaduna over the matter.
The girl, who lives with her grandmother on Bashama road, Tudun Wada, Kaduna said through her lawyer, Ado Ali that she wants the court to order her father to marry her off to her heartthrob.
“We want the court to order her father to marry her off to her heartthrob,” her lawyer said in court.
He also prayed that if the father remains adamant, the court should serve as the girl’s guardian and marry her off to the man she loves.
Ali said he had made attempts to convince the father to reconsider her, but the man has continued to withhold his blessings because he claims the suitor has no regard for him.
The girl’s counsel, however, prayed the court to grant the two parties two weeks “to sort things out and reach an agreement.”
The defendant’s counsel, Nasir Abdullahi, also agreed with the submission of the prosecution counsel for the court to give them time to resolve the issue.
The Judge, Malam Dahiru Lawal, noted that even though the father had the right to assess his daughter’s suitors, he has no right to force anyone on her.
He therefore ordered the defendant’s lawyer to present the father in court on Oct. 29, for further hearing.
