Man demand N1.5m from Wife to accept divorce
A businessman, Nura Ashiru, has demanded N1.5 million from his divorce-seeking wife, Zainab Bello, in a Shari’a court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna, Kaduna State.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Nura made this demand after his wife prayed the court to dissolve their union through Khul’i, a situation where a wife returns the dowry she received to redeem herself from the marriage.
“My wife caused me great loss. She destroyed my phone and took some of my belongings, which made me to later go into depression,” he said.
He begged the court not to give his wife custody of their baby.
Earlier, the complainant told the court that she was ready to return the N80,000 dowry she received from the defendant and prayed for the custody of their three-year-old child.
Bello also denied destroying her husband’s phone.
The judge, Malam Isiyaku Abdulrahma, adjourned the case.
