Khadijat of Anguwan Katsinawa, Mararaba, had urged the court to dissolve her seven-year-old marriage to her husband, Usman Ango for alleged lack of love and peace. She told the court that since the inception of their marriage, the respondent was in the habit of beating her frequently. According to her, the respondent does not act as a husband that has two wives and hardly share responsibility among his wives. She said that last week, the respondent beat hell out of her, to the extent that he locked her up and it was his mother that ordered him to open the door. The petitioner said although their marriage was blessed with three children, that she was seeking for dissolution of their marriage. The presiding officer, Mr Ibrahim Shekarau, asked Ango if he agreed with his wife\s request and said no. Ango told the court that the matter had been settled at home and did not know why his wife still insist in bringing the matter to court. She said that in spite of their family intervention, Ango had not stopped beating her. Shekarau asked the couple to come with their parent to the court in the next adjournment day and adjourned the case till Aug. 24 for hearing. (NAN)]]>
