A housewife, Amina Muhammad, has dragged her husband, Salisu Mohammed, before a Customary Court in Nyanya, Abuja, Federal Cappital Territory FCT), for alleged secret weddings with two other women.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the petitioner, who resides in Mararaba, Abuja, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), made the allegation in a divorce petition she filed against her husband.

She further said that the defendant has been denying her sex for over five years.
