A housewife, Rahma Ibrahim, on Tuesday, dragged her husband to a Sharia Court sitting at Magajin Gari, Kaduna, accusing him of stripping her naked in public.

The complainant who resides at Abuja road, Rigasa area of Kaduna, prayed the court to dissolve the marriage, saying she would not stay in a marriage where she was not respected.

“I was coming out of the bathroom when he started insulting me and removed the wrapper I was wearing in the compound.

“He assaulted me and broke my things; I’m tired of the marriage, I want divorce,” she told the court.

On his part, the husband, Kabiru Sulaiman, denied the accusation, describing it as untrue.

The judge, Rilwanu Kyaudai, ordered the complainant to present her witnesses at the next sitting of the court on November 30.
