Sule told the court that his wife married another man without the dissolution of their marriage, adding that his father-in-law played a prominent role in his marriage with Awawu conducted under Islamic law.
He said that his father-in-law facilitated another marriage between Awawu and one Jemilu Bahause on August 6, 2022, while the marriage contract with him was still subsisting.
“Alhaji Haruna Danjuma, who is the father of my wife Awawu, 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,” he added.
Magistrate Abdulraheem Bello ordered the remand of Awawu and Jemilu in the Federal Correctional Facility, Ilorin, and adjourned the case till September 26, for hearing.
