I was admitted in hospital for 13 days the last time he beat me —Woman
•I now love my wife every hour, please don’t separate us —Man
A housewife, Ladidi Abbas, has dragged her husband, Shehu Abbas, to a Sharia court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna, Kaduna State, seeking divorce over alleged battery.
Abbas, who reside at Rigasa, Kaduna, said her husband usually beat her any time they had a misunderstanding.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the last time he did, she was hospitalised for 13 days.
“He usually beats me in front of our children. The last time he beat me, I was hospitalised for 13 days”, Ladidi said.
She prayed the court to dissolve their marriage and grant her custody of their children.
The defendant, Shehu, a retired journalist who also resides at Rigasa, denied the allegation.
“I have just started loving my wife. I love her more and more every hour,” he said.
Shehu thus prayed the court to grant him time to resolve their marital problems.
The judge, Murtala Nasir, after listening to both parties, ordered the complainant to bring witnesses to testify on her allegation of battery.
He then adjourned the case for further hearing.
