'My Husband Doesn't Pray', Woman Tells Court
Yahanasu Dahiru has been married to Nasiru Sani for five years and are blessed with a child.
But all through those years, she has never seen him pray as every good Muslim does, and this is a concern for her.
The 23-year-old housewife has asked a Sharia Court II at Magajin Gari, Kaduna to dissolve her marriage to Sani because of his waywardness.
Asides being a ‘prayerless’ man, he also allegedly neglects his responsibilities as her husband.
“My husband doesn’t offer his prayers, neither does he provide food for me or medication whenever I fall sick,” she said.
According to her, the defendant ignored her when she moved to her parents’ house for eight months over a misunderstanding they had.
She added that even though she fell sick and was hospitalised during the period, her husband did not bother to show up or settle the medical bills.
Dahiru, therefore, urged the court to dissolve the marriage as she is no longer interested in the union.
The defendant, however, dismissed the wife’s claims as untrue.
The judge, Musa Sa’ad ordered the couple to present their guardians and witnesses to the court on March 27, when hearing in the case will continue.
