Woman, 43, seeks divorce after five children, says husband impotent

Sa’adatu Ayuba, a 43-year-old housewife with five children, has asked a Dei-Dei Grade I Area Court presided over by Malam Saminu Suleiman, for divorce after a 27-year marriage to Jalija, over impotence.

The petitioner got married to Jalija by Islamic law in 1997. They are blessed with five children aged 25, 22, 14, nine and seven.

She told the court, “I got married when I was 16 years old. I have never been with any other man before my marriage.

”Since two years ago, I have been having misunderstandings with him. This is because he got a girlfriend outside our marriage.

”He has not been functioning as a man. I am tired of the situation (impotence) and attitude, and want a divorce in the interest of justice.”

In his response, Jalija said the petitioner’s allegations were false. He added that he had no girlfriend.

”I married another wife and I am performing perfectly as a man. The lady I married has one child for me, we got married in her village,” he said.

He added that he had been playing his husband’s role to the petitioner as a real man.

However, the petitioner faulted her husband’s claim, saying that the woman in question was his girlfriend.

She said that she was not aware that her husband got married to the woman.

After hearing both parties, the judge gave the couple one week to settle the matter amicably and adjourned the matter until January17 for feedback.
