Ex-husband docked over alleged N250,000 pregnancy maintenance arrears



Maijidda Abdulmumini on Friday brought her former husband, Abubakar Sulaiman, before a Sharia Court 1 in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, over alleged N250,000 arrears of maintaining her pregnancy.

The plaintiff, Abdulmumini, through her counsel, B.M. Jino, told the court that they were seeking N250,000 for maintaining Sulaiman’s pregnancy for five months after their divorce, up till her delivery.

Jino prayed the court to order Sulaiman to return their N25,000 mattress, which he took from the plaintiff, and also to pay N15,000 monthly for their child’s upkeep.

The defendant, Sulaiman, an estate agent, who resides within Kaduna metropolis, through his counsel, Sulaiman Yusuf, denied the plaintiff’s claim of spending N250,000 for maintaining her pregnancy.

He also denied taking the plaintiff’s mattress.

“We will pay N3,000 monthly, for the child’s upkeep,”  the counsel said.

The Judge, Muhammad Adam-Shehu, adjourned the case to Feb. 4.

He ordered the plaintiff to come along with evidences of her claims on the adjourned date, for continuation.
