A woman, Fatima Mohammed, on Friday urged a Sharia Court in Minna to dissolve her seven-year-old marriage over her husband’s indebtedness to her.
She had approached the court seeking the dissolution of her marriage to Ibrahim Mohammed over unsettled debt of N100,000.
She said her husband borrowed the money immediately they got married and had since not paid.
She also accused her husband of not performing his duty of feeding her, the children and taking care of other needs.
Mohammed denied the allegations, but said he was also no longer interested in the marriage. He, however, did not object to the wife’s request for a divorce.
He accused his wife of not taking good care of his children, as well as starving him of sex.
In his ruling, the judge, Mr. Ahmed Bima, adjourned the case until June 8 for ruling on the dissolution of the marriage and to look into the counter-claims of the husband.
