A Kaduna-based businessman, Muhammad Muntari has dragged his estranged wife before a Shari’a Court ll sitting at Magajin Gari, Kaduna over her refusal to return his household items she left with after their union hit the rock.
Muntari, a resident of Badarawa area of Kaduna, told the court on Wednesday that Zakariyya had taken away his refrigerator, a gas cooker, three cooking pots and three food warmers after their divorce.
“I used to run a restaurant business before but due to some financial issue, I stopped and took all the items to my house for use.
“I didn’t give her those items as gift but kept it at home for general use,” he said.
In her response, the defendant also residing at Badarawa said the mentioned items were given to her by the complainant when they were a couple.
The Judge, Malam Murtala Nasir, had asked the complainant if he had any witnesses and he said no.
The judge also asked the complainant if he could swear with the Qur’an since there was no witness and he said yes.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the case was first heard on November 18 where the judge advised the complainant to consult his elders before swearing.
The complainant, however, swore with the Qur’an in accordance with the law.
The Judge ordered the defendant to bring all the items mentioned to court on December 10.
