He fell critically ill and he was taken to a village for treatment. She thought he is dead after taking a long period.

“Meanwhile, they were living in their matrimonial home when she went ahead to marry another man, Bala Abdulsalam, 40 years old who claimed he paid a dowry of N20,000 to her. “When Ibrahim (the first husband) recovered from the sickness, he was brought back to the house only to find that she was married to another man. She had three or four children for him. “She claimed the first husband had divorced her but he denied divorcing her. “There and then, they reported the case at the HISBAH office in Kumbotso where the case was later transferred to the head office in Kano. “We have also transferred the case to the Court,” Fagge said.
