A Grade I Area Court in Kubwa, Abuja annulled a seven-year-old marriage between Salamat Dauda and Isiyaka over the husband’s refusal to pay the school fees of his children.
Salamat pleaded with the court to divorce the marriage for reasons being her husband has failed in his duties as a husband and father and she is made to take full responsibility of the fees and other necessities needed in their home.
In her words,
”Isiyaka abandoned his responsibility as a husband and a father, I pay the school fees for our children and cater to other necessities in our home. “I do everything and I am tired of his behaviour, ” she said.
It was also confirmed that her husband who works in a construction company in Abuja agreed to his wife’s plead adding that he had tried his best.
However the Judge in charge of the case, Muhammad Adamu ruled that the wife should observe ’Iddah’ which is a waiting period where the woman must observe after the death or divorce of her husband before marrying again according to the Islam tradition.
