Mrs Mohammed told the court that her husband, Isah Gimba, spends his money on intoxicants rather than take care of the home.
“My husband doesn’t provide food in our house, instead any little money he gets he spends it on things that will intoxicate him.
“The hardship he subjects me to in his house is too much for me, I can’t bear it anymore.
“That is why I am pleading with this honourable court to help me out of this hardship by ending the marriage,” she said.
In his response, Gimba, who denied the allegations, saying he was trying his best to put food on the table for her.
He said that he still loved his wife and he did not want any separation.
Judge Ahmed Bima, advised the couple to give peace a chance and settle their differences with patience and understanding.
The case was adjourned till Oct. 9 to give room for both parties to reconcile their differences.
