Polygamy Palava: Man Beat Up First Wife For Refusing To Greet 2nd Wife
A middle-aged woman Zainab Ahmed on Tuesday dragged her husband Oare Abdulrazak before a Sharia Court ll sitting at Magajin Gari, Kaduna over an alleged assault.
The complainant, a resident of Hayin Dan-Bushiya, told the court that Abdulrazak had assaulted her because she refused to exchange greets with her co-wife when they met in the market.
“This is not the first time he has beaten me, in fact, this is the third time. I tried to explain to him what happened but he turned a deaf ear,” she stated.
She also told the court that her husband does not show her love and care whenever he was in her room, praying the court to dissolve the marriage as she was no longer interested in the union.
In his defence, Abdulrazak, who is married to three wives, said he had only beaten her once and had since regretted his actions and apologised to her.
The judge, Malam Musa Sa’ad-Goma after listening to both parties ordered them to present their guardians in court at the next hearing so as to find a solution to the problem.
He thereafter adjourned the case to February 11.
