Gudu Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, has dissolved the four-year-old marriage between Hussainat Mohammed and Ismaila Agboola for lack of love and affection.
The court president, Mr Abdul Bello, who dissolved the marriage ordered Hussainat to obtain a divorce certificate from the court’s registry.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), he also ordered Hussainat not to contract another marriage until after three menstrual cycles.
Hussainat filed the petition for divorce in September 2016, which Agboola did not object to.
She stated that she got married to the respondent in November 2013, under Islamic rites and that they had lived apart since the consummation of their marriage.
Hussainat said Agboola lived in Lagos, and visited her twice or thrice in a year, adding that she took care of their 2-year-old daughter without any assistance from him.
