I can’t sleep with my eyes closed – Man begs court to evict ex-wife from his house

A 50-year-old man identified as Mukhtar Ibrahim has prayed to a Shari’a court sitting in Kaduna state to evict his former wife from his house.

He made the prayer through his counsel, Jamilu Sulaiman on Wednesday, June 14, 2023.

The complainant also prayed the court to confirm the third pronouncement of divorce he gave to his ex-wife, Sa’adatu Abdulhadi.

Ibrahim said he is scared of the defendant and cannot sleep well at night. He told the court that she once invited members of her family to beat him up.

“I also want the custody of my four children because she lacks good manners; she had once called her family to beat me up, leaving me with injuries and bruises.

“Right now, I am scared for my life and I can’t sleep with my two eyes closed since she refused to leave the house”, he said.

The defendant was not in court but the court messenger confirmed serving her the court sermon.

The presiding judge, Malam Isiyaku Abdulrahman adjourned the matter to 10th of July for the defendant to respond to the allegations.
