“She picks calls from men. I sent her home to learn how to live in a marriage.
“I reported to her parents several times. They pleaded with me and I took her back,” Abdullahi said.
The petitioner had through her counsel, Adamu Garba, told the court that his client wanted divorce on the grounds of battery.
“He always beats my client. He has sent her packing to her parents’ home four times. The last time, he drove her home and divorced her, but returned her after some months.
“We are praying the court to terminate the marriage completely. She can no longer live together with him,” Garba said.
