Deaf and Dumb Man Pleads With Court to Dissolve his Marriage, Wife Plans to Sell his House
He said, “I am tired of her, she collected unnecessary money from me, she locked me outside whenever am coming back from work and also planning to sell my house.
“Your honour, I want an end to this marriage because this is the second time I wrote petition against her. The first time she promised to change from her misbehaviour, but failed to do so.” The respondent, Sakirat, who burst into tears in the court, said she still love her husband and didn’t want to divorce him, adding that their marriage was contracted in 2011 and produced a child.
She said, “Please, I didn’t want to be a single mother and I will put a stop to my misbehaviour.“I agreed that he should marry second wife, but I am begging him not to divorce me.”
The Magistrate, Mr. Abdulqadir Ibrahim, dissolved their marriage and issued a certificate of divorce to the petitioner.
