A 30 year old pregnant woman, Lauratu Abdullahi, has asked a Sharia Court at Magajin Gari in Kaduna State to dissolve her marriage because her husband has not been performing his sexual duties to her.
Lauratu Abdullahi also told the court that her husband, Yahaya Tanko, was always assaulting her and was also not providing for her.
The mother of five told the court today, Monday that Tanko had starved her of sex and food in the past four months.
“I want the court to dissolve our marriage because my husband does not love and care for me anymore. He beats me when he pleases.”
But, Tanko denied the allegations, saying that he still loved Lauratu, pointing out that the woman is carrying a four-month-old pregnancy.
“I want to inform the court that my wife is four months pregnant, so her claim of being sexually starved is incorrect.”
The Judge, Malam Musa Sa’ad, asked Lauratu if she was pregnant and the sex-starved woman said she was.
She said however, that the romance that resulted to the pregnancy lasted for only month.
The case was adjourned to April 3 for the two parties to present their guardians and witnesses.
