The 8-year-old marriage between Mrs Samira Makama and her husband, Muhammed Musa, has been dissolved by a Jos Central Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama 1 on Thursday, over the husband’s inability to provide for his family.
A panel of judges made up of Malam Sadiq Adam and Mr Hyacinth Dolnanan, in granting the request made by Makama, said that all efforts to reconcile the parties had failed.
The judges ordered the petitioner and respondent to go their separate way.
The court, however, instructed that the respondent provide monthly upkeep for his children and to pay their school fees, NAN reports.
Earlier, the wife pleaded with the court to dissolve their marriage, saying that her husband, who she has been married to for the last 8 years, had failed to cater for her and their two children.
She told the court that her husband had initially divorced her twice according to Islamic rites and that he had also cut off conjugal relationship with her.
She said that she was at the court to seek the dissolution of her marriage to the respondent.
