A 25-year-old woman simply identified as Sadiya has dragged her father, M. Usman, before a Shari’a court sitting at Rigasa, Kaduna, for forcing her into loveless marriages.

The complainant, who resides in Rigasa, told the court that her father has forced her into three loveless marriages.
“My father arranged and forced me to marry without me knowing the man I was marrying.
My first and second marriages were all forced marriages arranged by my father. I can’t continue like this. I want the court to dissolve the marriage.” she told the court
Sadiya further told the court that she currently lives with someone at Unguwan Sarki area of Kaduna.

On his part, the father denied the allegation of forcing his daughter into marriage. According to him, his daughter brought the man home but later rejected him.
“Her claims that she does not know him is not true. I don’t know where my daughter is currently staying. She left my house on the day of the wedding. I pray this court to order her to return home as soon as possible.”he said

The judge, Malam Salisu Abubakar-Tureta, did not accept the prayers of the defendant, but ordered the complainant to stay under the custody of the District Head of Rigasa and adjourned the case to March 10.
