Wife offers to return N50,000 dowry to end 8-year marriage

A house wife, Hanifa Adamu, has asked a Sharia court in Magajin Gari, Kaduna to dissolve her eight-year-old marriage, saying she can no longer fulfil her marital duties to her husband.

‎Hanifa said she was willing to return the N50,000 dowry paid on her as enshrined by Islamic law.

Through her counsel, Junaidu Aminu, Hanifa told the court that she got married to her husband in year 2010, but she was no longer interested.

“My lord, my client wants this court to dissolve her marriage with her husband because she can no longer fulfil her marital duties as a woman to him and she is ready to return the N50,000 dowry he paid on her during the wedding in 2010”.

Her husband, a government official in Plateau State, Ibrahim Isyaku, represented by his counsel, Badamasi Adam, said the court had no jurisdiction to entertain the case.

He urged the court to give him time to meet his client for more details on the case when he returns from his overseas trip.

The judge, Dahiru Lawal, after listening to the two counsels adjourned the case to August 15 for continuation.
