The husband, Babangida Jibrilla, has dragged his wife, Aisha Mohammed to Civil Area Court I in Yola where he prayed the court to order his wife to pay him the sum of #20,000 she collected for January, February, and March this year.
He told the court that originally, that they had been sharing the cash with his wife when she started taking advantage of Buhari’s gesture, saying that whenever she collects the stipends, she gives him 50 percent out of it.
He alleged that his wife had collected the sum of #20,000 at the top of March, but refused to declare the cash or give him his own share, and urged the court to compel her to offer him the entire sum because the account is bearing his name.
The complainant also joined his father-in-law, Mohammed Buba within the suit as 2nd defendant where he alleged that his father-in-law had refused to permit his wife to return to her matrimonial home for the past 16 months.
He informed the court that for the past 16 months his wife had been together with her parents with none cogent reason which all effort to form her return to his house failed woefully, and asked the court to order his father-in-law to permit his wife to return to her matrimonial home.
But the wife denied the liability, saying that it’s not true that the cash comes in his name, explaining that the stipends are being given to women to spice up their business activities which it’s her portrait that’s on the account and not his.
Aisha informed the court that the union had been contracted about 5 years ago, but couldn’t produce fruits of the womb.
On his part, the second defendant vehemently denied refusing to permit his daughter to return to her matrimonial home, stating that the allegation leveled against him by the husband is away from the reality which he’s able to convince the court that it’s not true.
After hearing all the parties involved within the matter, the court presided by Honourable Musa A. Shanu, adjourned the case to the 8th April 2021 for hearing.
