A nursing mother, Hassana Shehu, has dragged her husband, Abubakar Dauda, to a sharia court in Magajin Gari, Kaduna, Kaduna State for lack of food.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the petitioner said her husband had not fed and cared for her and their baby enough since she gave birth a few months ago.
“He didn’t bring any firewood that would be used to boil water that my baby and I would use for our bath. He also didn’t provide any food,” she said.
The defendant was not in court but asked his brother, Shuaibu Dauda, to represent him.
Shuaibu also did not appear in court because he was unwell.
He therefore begged the court to postpone the case for a week, when the defendant would be fit to appear in court.
The judge, Mallam Murtala Nasir, granted his prayers and adjourned the case for consideration.
