Recession: Husband Demands 3mln Naira From Divorce-seeking Wife
This time he is collecting the Alimony, a hefty one.
Bello U, has told his wife that freedom from him comes at a price she might not be able to afford, apparently he does not want her to go.
His wife, Aishatu, had sued Bello at the City Lower Shari'a Court, Sokoto, praying for a divorce, but the husband is asking for 3 million Naira to let her go.
Bello, through his counsel, told the court that Aishatu must pay the money due to the present economic recession in Nigeria and if she failed to pay the money, the court should allow the couple to decide how best to settle the matter.
Aishatu told the court that her husband had no respect for her parents and other relatives.
She said there was no peace in her home for five years.
"I am ready to pay 150,000 Naira to Umar in order to divorce me, or the court should order the valuation of the exact amount to be given,” she said.
The case was adjourned till March 27.
