Court orders divorce-seeking wife to return husband’s N85,000, other gifts
An Upper Area Court in Mararaba, Nasarawa State on Thursday ordered a housewife, Maryam Abdulmalik, to return N85,000 cash to her estranged husband Sani Idris.
Judge Mohammed Jibril, who gave the order, also ordered Ms Abdulmalik to return the unsewn wrappers he bought her as gifts.
Ms Abdulmalik in a divorce petition told the court that she was no longer in love with Idris.
The judge ordered Mr Idris to allow his wife to move her belongings out of his house.
Mr Jibril adjourned the case until October 4 for dissolution of the marriage.
Ms Abdulmalik had said that she married Mr Idris in January 2020 under the Islamic rights in Rugan Maliki, Mararaba Gurku, Nasarawa State .
“I lived with my husband for a year and some months.
“He does not care for me. I am ready to pay for my redemption in accordance with Islamic Law Procedures and Practice because I do not have any feelings for him,” she said.
She prayed the court to dissolve the union.
Mr Idris, who was present in court, begged his wife not to divorce him, stating that he still loves her so much.
“I spent a lot of money on my wife and her family.
”I gave her N85,000, bought her wrappers and even assisted her parents on the farm,” he said.
