Woman Divorces Husband to Marry Man Her Daughter Rejected


A case has been reported from Rano Local Government Area of Kano State of a woman, identified simply as Malama Khadija, who dumped her own marriage to marry a suitor that her daughter rejected.

Reports have it that the family members of Khadijah have accused the Hisbah Commandant of Rano LGA of marrying off their daughter without their consent.

Khadija who has spoken on the issue, said she was happy with her new husband.

She said after realizing that her daughter would not marry the man, she contacted him because both of them should not lose him.

She argued that she is right for the man because she is as beautiful as her daughter.

She said, “I didn’t do it with ignorance. I contacted clerics and they said it is not prohibited. When I contacted him, he agreed, but my parents and relatives refused to do the marriage rites. So, I went to Hisbah and we are happily married now.”

Khadija’s uncle, Abdullahi Musa Rano, condemned the arrangement, saying he and other members of the family refused the marriage plan because she deliberately dissolved her first marriage to marry her daughter’s suitor, which is inappropriate.

“She mounted pressure on her husband to divorce her just to marry the man. We can’t do this shameful thing in our family, which was why we refused to join them in marriage.

“We are not happy about what Hisbah did and we are reporting to bring out our daughter. We want the general commandant and the state government to intervene,” he said.

Reacting, the General Commandant of Hisbah, Sheikh Harun Ibn-Sina, promised to investigate the matter.
