I want divorce, says housewife

A housewife, Asmau Abdullahi, has pleaded with a Minna Sharia Court to dissolve her marriage because of constant beating and insult from  her husband.

Asmau said her husband, Ibrahim Abdullahi, was fond of assaulting her.

“My husband insults me a lot and calls me names like `mad woman’, `foolish woman’ and things like that.

“He always beats me and forces me to fetch water from the well late at night.

“My man does not show me love. This is why I want an end to this marriage,” she added.

Ibrahim, however, denied his wife’s allegations, saying he was a good husband.

He said he still loved his wife and did not want divorce.

The judge, Malam Ahmed Bima, advised the couple to give peace a chance and settle their differences, as marriage required patience and understanding.

He adjourned the case till September 11, to allow parties settle their differences.
