Housewife drags ex-husband to court over N60,000 antenatal fees



A housewife, Fatima Yakubu, on Thursday prayed a Sharia Court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, to order her her former husband, Abubakar Haruna, to refund the N60,000 she spent on antenatal.

The plaintiff told the court that her ex-husband whom she legally divorced on Jan. 8, has not shown any care over her well-being even though she was pregnant.

“Haruna  drives a flashy car and  can afford to take care of me because he is responsible for my  pregnancy,”she said.

Yakubu alleged that her former husband earns more than N150,000 monthly.

She also prayed the court to order Haruna to pay her N20,000 monthly untill she delivers.

The plaintiff  equally prayed the court to order the defendant to pay her N5,000 monthly.

The defendant, Abubakar Haruna, represented by his counsel, M.A. Bammali, told the court that his client was aware that Yakubu was pregnant.

He said that his client can pay N5,000 as monthly upkeep for Yakubu.

The Judge, Murtala Nasir, after listening to both parties, ordered the defendant to register his former wife in a hospital for proper antenatal and adjourned the case untill Jan. 23, for continuation of hearing.
