Divorce: Court orders woman to return mattress to estranged husband

A shari’ah court in Kaduna has ordered a divorce-seeking woman to return a mattress belonging to her estranged husband.

According to NAN, the woman is identified as Halima Ahmad while her estranged husband is Suleiman Atiku.

Both parties appeared in court on Monday, while struggling over the mattress said to have belonged to Suleiman.

The man, who is a correctional service officer, had earlier asked for the mattress before agreeing to her divorce request.

Halima, who lives in Badarawa, Kaduna, in April 2022, filed for divorce at the sharia court sitting in Magajin Gari.

In his ruling, the judge asked Suleiman to give Halima N20,000 to enable her to buy a new mattress.

He further ordered him to pay N80,000 to his embattled wife to enable her to pay the debt she incurred during the period of their marriage.

The judge adjourned the case until July 25 for ruling on the divorce application.

Earlier, the respondent, who did not give a reason for seeking a divorce, told the court that she was ready to return her bride price to him.

Suleiman also told the court that the mattress belonged to his first wife.
