Woman drags ex-husband to Court over assault
By Agency Report
A 30-year-old woman, Janet Audu, has dragged her ex-husband, Ishaku Maigari, to the Magajin Gari Sharia Court in Kaduna over alleged assault and harassment.
Janet told the court that her former husband has been harassing her in public, calling her a prostitute and beating her.
She said that since their separation five years ago, during which she was granted custody of their three children, Maigari has also failed to cater for the children.
“We have been separated for five years now but he has refused to move on. He constantly visits my house and shop to harass and beat me”, the complainant said.
She therefore urged the court to intervene, so as to stop Maigari from assaulting and harassing her, and compel him to be a responsible father to his children.
However, when his plea was taken, the ex-husband denied all the allegations made against him, saying they were untrue.
The Judge, Malam Musa Sa’ad, asked Janet if she has any witness, which she answered in the affirmative but complained that those willing to testify were afraid of Maigari.
