Husband sues mother-in-law

 

Kaduna – Malam Mohammed Abdullahi on Friday sued his mother-in-law, Habiba Mohammed, at  a Kaduna Sharia Court for refusing to allow his wife return to him after the delivery of a baby.
Abdullahi prayed the court to order his mother -in-law to allow his wife, Sa’ade Abdullahi, to return to him.
Sa’ade had refused going back to Lokoja, where Abdullahi resides after coming home for the delivery of her first child.
Abdullahi told the court that he had been living in peace with his wife since they married and that he allowed her to return to her mother to receive proper care after delivery.
“A week after the naming ceremony, we lost the child, so I allowed her to stay for sometime. I also gave them N50,000 for the arrangement to  return her to Lokoja,” he said.
Abdullahi said Sa’ade  failed to  return to him but was  told that her parents had spent the money.
He said he sent more money to ensure she returned but she failed and remained with her mother.
But Sa’ade told the court that she refused to return because her husband  had not been teaching her Islamic practices, including how to observe her daily prayers.
She further told the court that her husband denied her marriage mates their turns in the observance of their marital obligations against Islamic injunctions.
In her testimony, Habiba told the court that she had no hand in her daughter’s refusal to return to her husband.
“I am not the one who gave Sa’ade’s hand in marriage to Adullahi, it was  her father’s relations.
 “I left her late father since she was young,” Habiba said.
The Presiding judge, Malam Ibrahim Inuwa, directed the husband to enroll his wife in an Islamic school to learn basic  Islamic knowledge.
He also directed the mother-In-law to make arrangements for Sa’ade’s return to her husband on or before Sept 2.
He adjourned the case to Sept. 5 to enable the court to receive report  from the complainant on compliance with the directive on  Sa’ade’s return. (NAN)
