Bride?s relative steals dowry in Kano

The relative of a bride who was tasked with giving out her hand in marriage (waliyyi), has been accused of stealing her dowry shortly before the wedding fatiha in Kurna area of Dala LGA of Kano State.


Daily Trust reported that people were left stranded waiting for the wedding to take place while the dowry was not found. The theft was uncovered after a search was conducted on people in the area. 


A resident, Sunusi Dan Mamman said;


“During the search, the money was found inside the pocket of the waliyyi. who said he didn’t know how they got into his pocket.

“On getting the money, the waliyyi was chased out of the mosque as he could not stand for the bride as her representative. His younger brother was assigned to stand for her and the wedding went on.”


It is however unclear if he was arrested afterward. 

Return N80,000 dowry, Kaduna court orders divorce-seeking wife

A Kaduna Sharia Court Judge, Muhammad Adamu-Shehu, on Thursday, ordered a divorce-seeking woman, Fatima Muhammad, to return N80,000 dowry received in exchange for a divorce, NAN reports.


Adamu-Shehu gave the ruling and advised her to file another suit to claim custody of their only three-year-old child.


Earlier, the woman told the court that she was no longer interested in the marriage and ready to comply with any necessary settlement.


“I am tired of the union and I can not be an obedient wife to him. I prayed the court to grant me custody of our three-year-old daughter.” Fatima said.


However, the defendant, through his counsel, L.R Ibrahim, said that he still loved his wife and wanted to keep their relationship and prayed the court to give him more time to settle out of court.



Court dissolves three-month-old marriage, orders wife to return N20,000 dowry

A sharia court in Magajin Gari, Kaduna, has dissolved the three-month-old marriage union between one Muhammad Abdulganiyu and Ma’arufat Ibrahim, Guardian reports.


Delivering judgment in the case on Wednesday, January 3, the judge, Malam Rilwan Kyaudai said the marriage was dissolved after all efforts to reconcile the couple by the court and their guardians failed.  He ordered Ibrahim to return N20,000 paid as dowry.


“She will also return the marriage suitcases she received and contents with the exception of the ones she has also sown. She will not return the cell phone as requested by the complainant but she will return the silver rings she received from him” the judge said


Earlier, Abdulganiyu in his petition alleged that his wife left their matrimonial home without any altercation.

“I tried my best to provide for her, but she and her mother do not appreciate my efforts and we’ve been married barely three months. If she’s not interested in the marriage anymore, she should pay me all I spent during the wedding and return the phone and silver rings I gave her” he said


On her part, the aggrieved wife said she left because her husband does not provide food for her. She said that he had told her that his mother pushed him into marrying her.

A Sharia Court in Kaduna State has granted the request of a lady identified as Maryam Dahiru, who asked that her marriage to one Salihu Yakubu be terminated.

Naija News learnt that Dahiru had on October 12, through her counsel Murtala Gyallesu, filed a suit against Yakubu, begging the court to end their one-month-old marriage through Khul’i.

She told the court that she was no longer interested in the marriage and was ready to pay all the prices to get them separated.

On his part, Yakubu, through his counsel, M. M. Dahiru, told the court that he was still in love with his wife and had no intention of divorcing her.

He, however, prayed the court to order his former wife to return the marriage suitcases filled with clothes he gave her as a gift.

Delivering his judgement at the court situated in Magajin Gari, Kaduna, on Monday, the judge, Malam Rilwanu Kyaudai, ordered Dahiru to return N100,000 dowry and the suitcases of clothes she received from her ex-husband.

He confirmed the divorce between the couple through Khul’i (divorce by mutual Agreement).

“She will only return the clothes she hasn’t used. The complainant has the permission of the court to move her belongings from her former husband’s house,” the judge ruled.

In another report, a chief man in Borno State was poisoned to death by his second wife of one year.

The victim, Goni Abbah, was said to have returned home from a prayer session at the mosque at Anguwan Doki, where he usually led other Muslim faithful in prayer, when the suspect, Fatima Abubakar, reportedly carried out the heinous act.

The State Command of the Nigeria Police Force confirmed in a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday that the 25-year-old housewife has been arrested and is now in its custody for further investigation, Naija News reports.

The state commissioner of police, Abdu Umar, while interacting with journalists at the force headquarters in the state, said Abubakar was arrested on October 19 by men of the Command at Anguwan Doki, Naija News reports.

According to her confessions, Umar said the suspect mixed poison in the Chief Imam’s food after returning from the mosque on the day of the incident. He explained that as soon as Goni started eating, his condition deteriorated.

According to him, the victim was immediately rushed to the State Specialist Hospital, where he was given emergency medical attention, but unfortunately, he later died when they returned home.

The police commissioner further disclosed that men from the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department of the command were immediately deployed to arrest the suspect after the incident was reported by the victim’s family.

A 52-year-old Kenyan man is elated after a court granted his dowry refund request following the collapse of his marriage. 


Wilberforce Murung’a had dragged his former in-laws to Kitale chief magistrate last December, demanding a dowry refund including cash, three cows, one she-goat, a pair of gumboots and a hat after the two year marriage fell apart.


The petitioner and his wife Irine Khasoa got married in 2017 and their marriage was annulled in 2021 in a Kitale court.



Wilberforce claimed that his wife deserted their marital home after one year and six months of living together and since he had paid the dowry in accordance to Bukusu traditions, it is his right to have it back.


“I paid Sh50,000, three Ayrshire heifers, one cross Ayrshire bullock, one she-goat, a pair of gumboots and a hat as bride price. I have a copy of the dowry negotiation agreement which was counter-signed by representatives of both families,” he said.


In the case before Kitale Chief Magistrate Julius Ngar, he argued that his mother-in-law and her daughter had conspired to defraud him of his hard-earned money. 


On Saturday, May 14, 2022, the Kitale mediation court ordered Murunga to be refunded three cows, a she-goat and KSh 20, 000.


Murunga and his brother Fred Matumbayi then proceeded to Kiungani at the Chief’s office in Baraton to pick the animals and cash from in-laws.


In the case, the man forfeited one cow, KSh 30, 000 and the rest of the items earlier paid as an appreciation to his ex-wife’s family.


Speaking after being refunded, Murunga said he was happy and justice had finally been served.


“I am excited and happy that the court has done justice for me. Since the aggressor happens to be a lawyer I never thought I would win this case and I thank God.” 


Murunga called upon men ”suffering in silence” to come out of their comfort zone and trust in court for justice.
