Asiya Balaraba Ganduje has filed a case before an upper shari’a court sitting in Filing Hockey in Kano State seeking to dissolve her 16-year-old marriage with her husband, Inuwa Uba.

Asiya presented her claim through Islamic Khuli principles, due to her being “fed up with the marriage.”

She also claimed that she is ready to return his N50,000 dowry to him as it is prescribed by Islamic jurisprudence that a woman had to pay the husband his dowry before the marriage is dissolved.

In contrast, Uba insisted that he still loves his wife and pleaded for the court’s mercy for more time to settle the misunderstanding between them amicably.

The judge, Khadi Abdullahi Halliru, permitted the husband an ultimatum of two weeks to resolve the differences between him and his wife.

But the counsel to the plaintiff led by Barrister Ibrahim Aliyu Nassarawa asked the court to adjourn the case to another time for them to counter the motion.

The judge adjourned the case until January 12th, 2023 to rule on the matter.
