I Will Grant My Wife Divorce If She Pays Me N1m – Man Tells Court

A businessman, Nasiru Yunusa has told an Upper Area Court in Kubwa, FCT, that he will only grant his wife, Aisha Hamisu a divorce if she pays him N1 million.

Yunusa and Hamisu got married according to Islamic laws sometime in 2021 and are blessed with a 13-month-old daughter.

Earlier, Hamisu approached the court seeking the dissolution of her marriage with Yunusa, on grounds of lack of care and respect.


She said that Yunusa packed her belongings from his house to her father’s house on April 19, 2022.

Yunusa, however, said he wanted Hamisu to return to his house but would grant her a divorce if she agreed to compensate him.


” I have spent money on a lawyer for court proceedings which has been going on and all I have spent on her is N1 million which I am ready to prove,” he said.

In response, the plaintiff said that she does not love Yunusa and cannot live with him.

”It is not true that he has spent N1 million on me because I have been with my parents for the past two and a half years after he dumped my property at their doorstep.

“I had our daughter through a cesarean section at Kubwa General Hospital and he did not pay a dime for the hospital bill.


“I am ready to pay him back the dowry of N50,000 only to him, ”she said.

The Judge, Mohammed Wakili, adjourned the matter until Jan 8 for the continuation of hearing.
