“Our first child is two, while the last one is just seven months’ old, I am still breastfeeding him.

”N20, 000 won’t be enough for me in one month to eat nutritious food and breastfeed his child. He should be giving me N30, 000,” Abubakar said.

Matazu, who resides in in Badarawa, Kaduna, denied that he divorced his wife.

He told the court that Abubakar’s mother forced him to divorce his wife.

” I only pronounced divorce once on a paper, signed it and gave her in presence of her parents”.

The judge, Malam Musa Sa’ad-Goma, after listening to both parties adjourned the case to May 21, for further hearing.

The judge also ordered the complainant to come along with her witnesses to attest to her claims of being completely divorced by her ex-husband. (NAN)
