A lady identified as Awawu Haruna has been dragged before Kwara State family court sitting in Ilorin alongside her father, Haruna Danjuma, by her husband, Ayuba Sule, after she married another man.
Sule who revealed that his wife married another man without the dissolution of their marriage, told the court that his father-in-law played an active role in his marriage with her daughter which was done under the Islamic law and rites.
He further disclosed that on August 6, 2022, Danjuma facilitated another marriage between his daughter and one Jemilu Bahause while the marriage contract with him (Sule) was still subsisting.
“Alhaji Haruna Danjuma who is the father of my wife (Awawu) in order to conceal the illegality, relocated her daughter and the new husband, Jemilu Bahause to an unknown location and they have since been living together as husband and wife.”
Magistrate Abdulraheem Bello adjourned the case till September 26, 2022 for hearing, after ordering that both the couple (Awawu and Jemilu), as well as the father of the bride, be remanded in the federal Correctional facility, Ilorin.
