My 17-yr-old wife ran away 5 days after we got married, 51-yr-old man tells court
He should pay me for having sex with me thrice before I left him —Wife
A Kubwa Grade I Area Court, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), recently ordered a 17-year-old housewife, Khadija Akarami, to return to her matrimonial home.
According to the News Agency of Ngeria (NAN), delivering judgment, the judge, Muhammad Adamu held that Khadija, in her testimony admitted to introducing her 51- year- old husband, Abubakar Aliyu, to her parents as her fiancé before they eventually got married.
Adamu, however, made his ruling based on the petition brought before him by Abubakar, adding that any party that is not satisfied can file fresh processes in court.
Earlier, Khadija’s father, Mohammed Musa told the court that his daughter stayed in her matrimonial home for three weeks before leaving.
“The day she ran away, Abubakar called me on phone to inform me and I confirmed that she travelled to her siblings in Kaduna.
“All efforts made by us to arrange a meeting with Abubakar to settle the issue failed. I was later served the court summons,” Mohammed said.
He added that his daughter was not forced into the marriage because she introduced Abubakar to him herself.
Abubakar, however said he wanted his wife back home but if she still refused, he would demand that her family pay back all he spent for their wedding.
He stated that he started courting Kadija in 2015, got married to her on June 15, 2020 and that she left home on June 20.
Kadija in response said Abubakar had sexual intercourse with her four times during her three weeks in matrimony, adding that he should also pay her back for it.
“I am no longer interested in the marriage,” she said.
