A middle-aged woman, Habiba Muhammad, has prayed a Shari’a Court sitting in Rigasa, Kaduna, Kaduna State, to compel her former husband, Umar Adamu, to leave her house.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the complainant, who resides in Rigasa area of Kaduna, told the court that Umar divorced her two years ago but has refused to leave her house saying no one can send him away.
“I inherited the house from my late father. He has refused to move out of my house. He curses and calls me names in the presence of our children,” she said.
In his defense, the defendant said Habiba was still his wife.
“We have 10 children in our marriage. Our first child is the owner of the house we are living in. She is lying,” he said.
The judge, Malam Salisu Abubakar-Tureta adjourned the case and ordered the complainant to bring her house documents on February 22.
