Karima Nuhu, 45, has launched a lawsuit against her ex-husband, Musa Falalu, for allegedly failing to transport her to Saudi Arabia.
The lawsuit was brought in front of a Shari’a Court in Rigasa, Kaduna. The plaintiff, who resides in Kaduna’s Rigasa neighborhood, told the court that she had been married to Falalu for four years, during which time he had only provided her with food for two months.
“He told me that he lost his job as a driver but had secured another one in Saudi Arabia, urging me to be patient while promising to take me along.
“So far, I have been feeding myself. I even borrowed money for him so that he would be able to pay for the trip, but after getting what he wanted, he divorced me.”
She told the court that she had no witnesses except God who will judge them on the last day. The defendant, however, denied the allegations as he revealed that he had divorced the complainant.
The judge, Malam Anass Khalifa, who confirmed the divorce between the couple, said the court would only listen to the complainant’s claims if she had witnessed them.
