Court Remands Woman For Allegedly Marrying Two Husbands –

A Kwara State family court sitting in Ilorin, has remanded a housewife, Awawu Haruna, and two others for allegedly marrying another man while in a subsisting relationship.

Awawu’s legally married husband, Ayuba Sule, dragged his wife with her father, Baruna Danjuma, before the family court after she married another man.

The plaintiff told the court that his wife married another man without the dissolution of their marriage.

Further, he also inform the court that his father-in-law, Danjuma, had played a vital part in his marriage with her daughter under Islamic law and rites.

On August 06, 2022, Sule told the court that the father-in-law married out his daughter to one Jemilu Bahause while the marriage contract with him was still subsisting.

“Alhaji Haruna Danjuma who is the father of my wife Awawu, in order to conceal the illegality, relocated her daughter and the new husband, Jemilu Bahause to an unknown location and they have since been living together as husband and wife,” Sule informed the court.

Magistrate Abdulraheem Bello ordered both the couple Awawu and Jemilu, as well as the father of the bride to be remanded in the federal Correctional facility, Illorin.

He, however, adjourned the case till September 26, 2022, for further hearing.
