A 55-year-old man, Hassan Jimoh, on Monday prayed a Sharia Court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, for divorce and an order of eviction on his wife, Silifat Salawuddeen.

Jimoh, an applicant, prayed the court to grant his divorce application over irreconcilable differences.

“I married her as a widower. We have spent five years together but I am tired now because there is no love and peace, anymore.

”She brought her children from her first marriage to my house. I told her to return them to their father’s house but she refused”, he said.

Jimoh told the court that he also gave Salawuddeen N50,000 to rent an apartment somewhere else but she refused to vacate.

In her defence, Salawuddeen, told the court that she refused to vacate the apartment because the N50,000 Jimoh gave her was not enough to rent a new place.

“I used the money he gave me to pay my debts on food items I collected on credit.

“My husband has not kept to his words of providing for the family for four months,” she said.

The Judge, Malam Rilwanu Kyaudai, adjourned the matter until Sept.14 for ruling on whether or not to grant Jimoh’s request for eviction.(NAN)
