A housewife, Talatu, has dragged her husband, Nasiru Sulaiman, before a Sharia Court ll, sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, seeking legal divorce over five-year sex starvation.
The 35-year-old resident of Makera, Kaduna, also told the court on Monday that Sulaiman refused to enroll their six children in school.
Sulaiman, however, denied the allegations. “When I left my wife was pregnant. When I came back, she told me that he had an abortion because she does not want to bear any child,” he said.
The defendant admitted that he gives his wife N300 daily because he has all the foodstuffs in the house.
The judge, Murtala Nasir, ordered both parties to settle their problems amicably.
The case was adjourned till September 23 for report on the settlement or continuation of hearing.
