A housewife, Zainab Yunusa, has asked a Sharia court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, to dissolve her marriage with Alhaji Ali Garba because of his unusual sex demands.

Zainab told the court on Wednesday that Garba demanded sex even while she was menstruating and during Ramadan.

She said they lived together only for a year as a couple, noting that she moved to her parent’s house over the matter.

The plaintiff explained that during their stay together, Garba usually came home in the afternoon during her menstrual cycle to demand sex.

She further said, “During Ramadan, he comes back home in the afternoon and demands sex, and whenever I refuse, he gets angry and offended. And when I ask him for food, he usually replies that I should go and meet my boyfriend to feed me.

“He never trusted me to the extent that he never allowed anybody, including my male or female relatives, to visit me.”

She, therefore, prayed the court to dissolve the marriage.

The husband, however, denied the claims, saying that Zainab had filed many allegations against him in different courts.

Garba told the court through his counsel, M. A. Sambo, that his wife’s mother went to his house in his absence, packed and sold his property before leaving with her daughter.

He said the mother later promised to return all what they took from his house during a settlement meeting.

Garba prayed the court to consider his request for return of his property as precondition for his acceptance of the divorce request.

The Qadi, Murtala Nasir, ordered the plaintiff to come to court with her mother on September 27. (NAN)
