A 28-year-old woman, Bilkisu Aminu, has sued her ex-husband, Muhammad Jibril, before a Sharia Court sitting at Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, over his denial of her pregnancy.
Bilkisu, who resides in Benin Street, Kaduna State, told the court that she got married to the defendant for three months before they were divorced.
“He divorced me on February 6, but after a few days at home, I went to a private hospital and the doctor confirmed that I am pregnant.
“I called Jibril to inform him of the pregnancy; he told me that he will visit me, which he never did,” she said.
Jibril, 32, who resides in Zaria Road, Kaduna State, told the court that he is not responsible for the pregnancy.
He said there was no s.e.x.ual intimacy with his divorced wife for over two months of their three-month marriage.
“We had a series of misunderstanding within the few months of our marriage, we did not make love at all, while in the third month of our marriage I divorced her,” he said.
The judge, Musa Sa’ad-Gona, ordered them to visit the hospital to ascertain if Bilkisu is really pregnant.
He then adjourned the case until Tuesday, April 2, for further hearing.
