Man Sues Wife For Aborting Their Child. A 43-year old businessman identified as Salisu Ibrahim on Tuesday dragged his wife Basira Adamu before a Shari’a Court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna, for allegedly committing an abortion.
The complainant said through his counsel M.M. Dahiru, told the court “She traveled to Kano with her sister-in-law without my permission, claiming that she had a miscarriage due to a motorcycle accident”.
The council also noted that Ibrahim divorced his wife under duress. He said, “My client upturned the divorce because of the love he had for her”.
In her defense, Adamu through her lawyer Murtala Idris said “My client is no longer his wife because he granted her divorce and she has completed her waiting period (Iddah)”.
However, the judge, Malam Nuhu Falalu, in his ruling urged the two parties to try to settle the matter out of court and adjourned the matter until April 26 for a report of settlement, NAN reports.
