Woman Marries Two Husbands, Kwara Court Remands Her
September 18, 2022
Awawu Haruna, a housewife, and two other people have been remanded by a Kwara State family court in Ilorin for allegedly getting married to another man while still in a relationship.
Her legal husband, Ayuba Sule, brought Awawu Haruna and her father, Haruna Danjuma, before the Kwara State family court after she wed another man.
Sule revealed that his wife married another man without their marriage being annulled.
The man told the court that his father-in-law played a prominent role in his marriage with her daughter under Islamic law and rites.
Sule, however, revealed that on August 6, 2022, the father-in-law, facilitated another marriage between his daughter and one Jemilu Bahause while the marriage contract with him was still subsisting.
“Alhaji Haruna Danjuma who is the father of my wife Awawu, in order to conceal the illegality, relocated her daughter and the new husband, Jemilu Bahause to an unknown location and they have since been living together as husband and wife,” Sule told the court.
Magistrate Abdulraheem Bello adjourned the case till September 26, 2022, for hearing.
He ordered both the couple Awawu and Jemilu, as well as the father of the bride to be remanded in the federal Correctional facility, Ilorin.
