Man sues his wife and father-in-law after she married another man
A lady identified as Awawu Haruna has been dragged before Kwara State family court sitting in Ilorin alongside her father, Haruna Danjuma, by her husband, Ayuba Sule, after she married another man.
Sule, who disclosed that his wife had married another man and that their marriage was not dissolved, said to the court that her father-in-law played an active role in his marriage with her daughter which was done under Islamic law and rites.
Danjuma also disclosed that he had arranged a second marriage with his daughter, Jemilu Bahause, on August 6, 2022. However, the marriage contract (Sule), was still in force.
“Alhaji Haruna Danjuma who is the father of my wife (Awawu) in order to conceal the illegality, relocated her daughter and the new husband, Jemilu Bahause to an unknown location and they have since been living together as husband and wife.”
Magistrate Abdulraheem Bello adjourned the case till September 26, 2022, for hearing, after ordering that both the couple (Awawu and Jemilu), as well as the father of the bride, be remanded in the federal Correctional facility, Ilorin.
