A house wife, Kafayat Jimoh, has filed a suit seeking to divorce her husband, Yusuf Aliu, over alleged frequent misunderstandings and battery.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Kafayat, in her divorce suit before an Area Court, Center-Igboro Area, Ilorin, Kwara State, said she was legally married under Islamic injunction to the defendant in 2019 and blessed with a child.
But she pleaded with the court to grant her request because there was no more love between her and her husband.
The plaintiff accused her husband of physically abusing her at the slightest misunderstanding.
The presiding judge, AbdulQadir Ibrahim, noted that the defendant had consented to the petitioner’s request through a ‘set free’ note to the court, agreeing to divorce the petitioner.
Ibrahim dissolved their marriage and ordered the petitioner to observe three months Iddah period before re-marrying.
He also warned that both parties must undergo another marriage rite should they decide to live together as husband and wife in the future.
