She told the court that, “We got married recently but never settled in any apartment for two months. He only booked hotels for us to meet.
“Along the way, he divorced me and we later settled and he divorced me again and married my best friend; giving her all my items, including my clothes.”
She prayed the court to assist her to recover all her wedding gifts and the ones she bought when she went for the lesser Hajj, noting that she never requested a divorce from the defendant.
On his part, the defendant who was represented by his counsel, Abubakar Sulaiman, denied giving his former wife wedding gifts.
The Judge, Malam Rilwanu Kyaudai, adjourned to August 9. (NAN)
