A Housewife, Bilkisu Abdullahi of Kabala Quarters, Kaduna State, on Friday accused her husband, Dauda Kasim, of making love advances to her mother.
Bilkisu, who made the accusation before a Kaduna Sharia Court, urged the court to dissolve their 4-year-old marriage.
She alleged that her husband was promiscuous and had been making frantic efforts to sleep with her mother.
Bilkisu also accused Kasim of assaulting her and occasionally following up the assault with beating.
``He also used to deny me food and necessary attention,’’ she further alleged.
She said that she had to relocate to her mother's house about 10 times in protest against Kasim's actions but he did not change.
Kasim, however, denied his wife's allegations, saying that Bilkisu was a difficult person, who could not understand and appreciate things.
He said his wife lied against him only to gain the court's sympathy, while denying making love advances to his mother-in-law and had never beating his wife.
Kasim alleged that his wife had vowed to dent his image because of his intention to marry another wife.
He said that she had on several occasions asked for divorce but he ignored her request.
He told the court that he still loved his wife and urged it to give them time to reconcile.
The court, presided by Usman Ibrahim, warned the couple against making uncomplimentary remarks and accusations against each other.
He directed them to settle their difference and report back to the court on April 25.
