She prayed court to dissolve the five year old marriage saying she was fed up and no longer Interested in the union.

The Nigeria News Agency , reports that the case was first heard on Nov. 18, and the complainant was ordered to bring her witnesses to court at the resumed hearing on Monday.

Mrs Basira Abdulakarim, a guardian to the complainant, who also served as witness, said the defendant had been assaulting her ward, and that she had tried to intervene on many occasions.

The defendant denied the allegations against him, saying they were untrue.
