Man Drags Wife To Court For Allegedly Terminating Pregnancy

A 43-year old businessman identified as  Salisu Ibrahim, on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against his wife, Basira Adamu before a Shari’a Court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna, for allegedly terminating a pregnancy.

The complainant said through his counsel M.M. Dahiru, told the court that the defendant also trespassed into his house and took away some of his belongings.

“She travelled to Kano with her sister-in-law without my permission, claiming that she had a miscarriage due to a motorcycle accident”, he said.

The counsel noted that Ibrahim divorced his wife under duress.

‘My client upturned the divorce because of the love he had for her,
” he said.

In her defence, Adamu through her lawyer Murtala Idris said that the miscarriage she had was not planned.

‘My client is no longer his wife because he granted her divorce and she has completed her waiting period (Iddah),” he said..

The judge, Malam Nuhu Falalu, said a man and his wife are one in statutory law and as such, there is no criminality between them.

He urged the two parties to try to settle the matter out of court and adjourned the matter until April 26 for a report of settlement, NAN reports.
