An Upper Area Court in Kubwa, Abuja, dissolved the six-year marriage between Hafsat Jimoh and her husband, Abubakar Momoh, based on Islamic Law. The decision came after Jimoh sought a divorce due to lack of love and care in the relationship.
Judge Mohammed Wakili ordered Jimoh to observe the three-month waiting period, known as “Iddah,” as mandated by Islamic law, before entering another marriage.
During the hearing, the respondent complained that the petitioner had blocked his cell phone, preventing him from contacting her as instructed by the court. He also expressed concern about the welfare of their children, claiming that she took them to Kaduna without his consent. The petitioner refuted these claims, stating that the respondent was free to see the children and communicate with them over the phone.
The petitioner informed the court that the marriage took place in October 2016 under Islamic law, but for the past six years, they have faced significant marital issues. Feeling tired and no longer willing to continue, she asked the court to dissolve the marriage, explaining that she didn’t want to suffer from depression.
In response, the respondent requested that the court intervene and mediate between their families. He mentioned that his wife no longer lived in their matrimonial home after he had traveled.
The petitioner countered by stating that they had previously attempted to involve both families in resolving their issues, but it had proven unsuccessful. (NAN)
