Husband, wife disagree as domestic violence threatens 24-year marriage

A housewife, Khadijat Mustapha, has approached an Upper Area Court in Kubwa, Abuja, seeking the dissolution of her 24-year-old marriage to her husband, Mahmuda Adamu, on grounds of lack of love and affection

Mustapha told the court that she got married to Adamu according to Islamic laws in the year 2000 and they are blessed with five children.

She said her husband called her an adulteress, threatens her life and always beats her at any slight provocation.

“My husband does not pray as a Muslim should and there is no more love between us. I want the court to dissolve the marriage,” she said.

The respondent, however, said he was still in love with his wife and needed time to settle with her.

The judge, Mohammed Wakili, adjourned the matter until May 6 for the couple to settle their differences and report back to the court.(NAN)
