A housewife, Sadiya Salihu, has approached an Upper Area Court in Gwagwalada, Abuja, (Federal Capital Territory FCT), seeking the dissolution of her marriage to her husband, Muhammed Mundi due to lack of love and care.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Sadiya told the court that she got married to Muhammed in December 2022 according to Islamic Personal Law.
“Our marriage was contracted in Suleja on December 17, 2022. Three days after the wedding, I started noticing some changes in my husband’s behaviour towards me.
“On January 7, he told me to get my things ready because he was returning me to my sister’s place in Gwagwalada.
I went back to Gwagwalada. When I was in my parents’ house he called and ordered me to move my things out,” she said.
Sadiya urged the court to dissolve their marriage on the grounds of lack of love and care.
Muhammed in his response said that his wife denies him sex.
The judge, Malam Abdullahi Abdulkarim, advised the couple to explore a means of settlement.
He then adjourned the case.
