A 23-year-old woman, Firdausi Suleiman, dragged her husband, Haruna Haruna, to a sharia court in Magajin Gari, Kaduna state, on Monday seeking divorce, claiming he beats her and says she eats too much.

In her petition, Suleiman, who lives in Rigasa in Kaduna, also told the court that her husband, Haruna, locks the kitchen at night.

“In our seven years of marriage, I have not gone a full year without him sending me back to my parents’ house.

“My father forced me to marry Haruna when I was 16 years old.

“He forbade me to receive visitors in our conjugal home. It also hits me.

“When I got tired, my parents found out what was happening and reported the matter to their mother. His mother told me that he was possessed by an evil spirit,” he said.

He prayed to the court to end the marriage and give him custody of his daughter.

In his defense, Haruna, a civil engineer through his attorney, M. K Mustapha, said that his client is mentally well and is not possessed.

“My client doesn’t seem like someone with bad spirits or mental problems. In fact, he is currently in Katsina state executing some projects, ”he said.

Judge Nuhu Falalu, after hearing from both parties, postponed the case until October 4.

He ordered Haruna’s lawyer to invite the couple’s parents or guardians to explore an amicable solution. (YAYA)
