An Area Court sitting in Ilorin on Thursday dissolved an Islamic marriage between Waheed Hafiz and Adama Hafiz.
Presiding Judge AbdulQodir Ahmed said that the husband wanted to end his marriage simply because he was tired of the relationship with his wife.
The wife was happy to hear the husband’s decision, saying “Alhamdulilah”, thank God for his willingness to divorce her.
The court dissolved the marriage and gave custody of their two children to the woman, while the man has the right to visit his children any day, but at a reasonable time.
The wife pleaded with the court to help her collect her Laptop and the sum of money that she lent her husband, also to cater for the children’s education, healthcare and feeding.
The husband however said that he had sold the laptop for N20,000 and promised to refund the N30,000 he owed her.
The judge had earlier stopped the arguments between the two, on the amount owed and selling of the laptop, saying that the case before the court is only on divorce and not material things.
Mr Ahmed also stopped the arguments on the amount to be paid monthly for upkeep of the two kids, as the wife requested N20,000 for each, while the husband offered to be paying N2,000 each.
The court adjourned the case to October 13, to enable the wife provide evidence and witnesses on the husband’s ability to pay N40,000 monthly for his children’s upkeep.
