A husband’s habit of always hitting the bottle and refusing to let go has resulted in the end of his five-year-old marriage.
The man, Abubakar Idris was dragged to the Shari’a Court at Magajin Gari, Kaduna on Monday by his wife, Hauwa Isah who prayed the court to dissolve marriage over Idris drinking habit.
Isah, urged the court for a divorce, on grounds that Idris, drinks a lot and does not provide for his family.
In his defence, however, Idris who did not deny the claims, said: “It is true that I take alcohol but I make sure I provide for her before I drink”.
Isah, a resident of Sabon Gayan area of Kaduna, presented witnesses in court on Aug. 26, who confirmed that Idris was an alcoholic.
“This is not the first time he promised to stop drinking. He has refused to keep to his promise,” she said.
Delivering a ruling, the Judge, Malam Muhammad Shehu-Adamu, pronounced the dissolution of the marriage and separated the two.
