A Sharia Court sitting at Magajin Gari in Kaduna on Monday ordered that one Idris Sai’du be given five strokes of cane for violation of the Islamic Law on divorce.

The judge, Mallam Dahiru Lawal, also ordered the man to pay N5,000 to his wife, Hauwa Abdullah, for abandoning her and wasting her time for so long.

The judge, who was irked at the respondent’s pronouncement of “I divorce my wife three times,” said it was not in line with Islamic practice.

He, therefore, ordered the respondent to be given five strokes of cane.

The complainant, Hauwa, had earlier told the court that her husband chased her out of her matrimonial home since last year and had never checked on her ever since.

“He asked me to leave his house since last year Ramadan, saying I should pack all my belongings and leave.

“It is almost a year now and he has never checked on me,” the complainant said.

Hauwa, who stated that they were not blessed with a child, added that she was in court to seek divorce, as she couldn’t be married to a man that didn’t care for her.

“I want this honourable court to compel my husband to divorce, me as he is no longer interested in me,’’ she said.

In his response to the allegations, Sai’du said he ordered Hauwa to return home because “she has been communicating with her ex-husband, which I am not comfortable with.

“I therefore divorce my wife three times.”
