Nursing Mother Wants Marriage ‘By Force’ From Lover
Is Badamasi Salihu, 20, speaking from both sides of his mouth?
He had at one time admitted to have had sex with 18-year-old Maryam Magaji, but now he is saying a different thing.
Salihu did not see his present predicament coming. Magaji now wants him to marry her by force.
The pleasure of few minutes has landed him in a Sharia court.
Magaji, who is now a nursing mother, on Wednesday dragged Salihu, whom she claimed was her lover, to a Sharia Court at Magajin Gari, Kaduna, for refusing to marry her.
She told the court that Salihu dated her for a year and promised to marry her, only to turn his back on her after getting her pregnant.
“I reported the matter to our district head, and he agreed to marry me after I deliver but he denied me after giving birth to his child saying he cannot marry me,” the complainant lamented.
Maryam begged the court to compel the defendant to accept the three weeks old baby she was nursing.
In his response, the defendant denied the claim, saying his relationship with her was that of a friend.
“She normally comes to my shop where we gist, crack jokes and laugh which made me attached to her, I see her as a friend that’s all,” Salihu told the court.

On whether he impregnated her, Salihi denied being responsible, saying the child she was nursing wasn’t his.
The judge, Malam Musa Sa’ad, requested the two parties to present their guardians and witnesses in court and adjourned the case till March 26.
