5-year-old marriage dissolved over threat to life in Mararaba

A Mararaba Grade 1 Area Court, Na­sarawa State, has dis­solved the five-year- ld mar­riage between Hawawu Isa and her husband Nuhu Isa, over threat to life and fre­quent beating.

President of the court, Owuna Musa, who dissolved the marriage, said he was convinced that the couple could no longer live together as husband and wife.

Musa said in spite several attempts to reconcile them, the petitioner insisted on divorce.

“The court has no choice than to dissolve the union, in spite of the fact that the hus­band still claims he loves his wife, the petitioner insists on getting a divorce.

“Both parties are no lon­ger husband and wife, as the marriage has broken down totally, they are free to go their separate ways,’’ the judge ruled.

Hawawu, 28, a housewife, filed a suit to end her mar­riage over her husband’s fre­quent beating and threat to her life.

“I married my husband sometime in 2012, but we have not been blessed with a child. My husband does not take his responsibilities as a man serious, he does not provides food or pay medi­cal bills for me.
