My husband abandoned me, nine children, wife tells court
A Kaduna state Sharia Court,  sitting in Magajin Gari, on Monday dissolved the marriage between Nuhu Usman and Rashida Aminu, over Nuhu’s failure to cater for the family.

The judge, Malam Musa Saad, dissolved the union after listening to both parties and their guardians.

Saad ordered Usman, the respondent, to give N10, 000 monthly allowance and a sack of corn monthly to Rashida, the petitioner.

“Based on the proof presented to court and the respondent not denying the allegations against him, I hereby dissolve the union between Nuhu Usman and Rashida Aminu,” he said.

Rashida had on September 5 told the court that her husband had abandoned her and their nine children for more than a year.

She said her parents had been the ones taking care of her and the children.

“I want this honourable court to dissolve our marriage because of his irresponsible behaviour,’’ she said.

In his response, the respondent said he was a driver that travels inter-states to make ends meet, adding that he sends money at intervals

“I sent N30, 000 to her within the period she filed the case,’’ he said.
Usman who said he still loved his wife, prayed the court to give him more time to reconcile with her.
