My husband runs after everything in skirt, beats me blue black —Wife

•I wish her the best —Husband

A Grade I Area Court in Kubwa, Abuja, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has dissolved a 12 -year-old marriage between Hadiza Isiyaku and Mohammed Ibrahim on grounds of battery.

Hadiza in her petition prayed the court to dissolve her marriage on grounds of lack of love and abuse.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the presiding judge, Muhammad Adamu, delivering his judgment also ordered the petitioner to observe “Iddah” (waiting period to be observed for three months) before contracting another marriage.

Hadiza who resides in Kubwa, Abuja said her 12-year-old marriage was marred by constant beatings from her husband.

She also said that Mohammed accused her of sleeping around with men and insulting her mother.

The mother of four said their marriage was contracted under the Islamic law.


Mohammed, however, consented to his wife’s petition of divorce saying that he wishes her the best in life.
