A two-year-old marriage between Shamsiya Isa and her husband, Rabiu Ibrahim, has been dissolved on Wednesday at a Jos Upper Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama over irreconcilable differences.
In granting Shamsiya’s request for an end to the marriage, the presiding judge, Lawal Suleiman ordered the estranged couple to part ways.
The judge, however, ordered the petitioner to refund the N25,000 dowry paid by Ibrahim.
The Judge also ordered that the respondent should pay a monthly allowance to the petitioner for the upkeep of the daughter, warning that defaulting the order would amount to contempt and shall be treated with the appropriate sanctions.
Shamsiya had earlier pleaded with the court to dissolve her marriage to Ibrahim, a business man, who she accused of excessive demand for sex “even during my monthly menstrual flow”.
“His demand for sex is too much. I can’t continue with this marriage,” she told the court.
