A housewife, Bilkisu Muhammad, prayed a Shari’a court sitting at Magajin Gari, Kaduna to recover N70,000 from her former husband, Kamal Rabiu.

The complainant said on Monday that she lent N75,000 to her husband when they were married and he paid back N5,000 only.

She said that Mr Rabiu, who divorced her, also took away a six kilogramme gas cylinder, food flask, washing bowl, wrapper, jug and cup.

In his reply, Mr Rabiu said he is aware of the loan.

”I only took the washing bowl and have no idea of the other items,” he said.

He prayed the court to give him until August to pay the debt.

The judge, Murtala Nasir, asked the woman to produce her witness who can testify that the items she listed were taken by Mr Rabiu.

He adjourned the matter until August 3 for Mr Rabiu to swear that he did not take his ex-wife’s belongings.
