A housewife, Rukayya Hamza, of Alkammawa area in the Sokoto North Local Government Area has dragged her husband, Ghazali Garba, before the city lower sharia court in Sokoto, seeking to him for not slaughtering rams to mark their children’s naming ceremonies. Rukayya told the court, presided over by Faruk Ibrahim, that the husband only gave names to the children, Idris and Khadija, three years and five months respectively, without slaughtering rams. She also complained that Ghazali Garba was not feeding her, and most times, beat her, urging the court to dissolve their . The husband admitted not slaughtering rams during the naming, but denied other allegations his wife levelled against him. He told the court that he neither starved her wife of food nor maltreated her. Garba said, “I did not slaughter rams on the children’s naming because I was insolvent whenever she was delivered of the children. So, I gave names to the children that.” Adjourning the case till May 23, 2017, the judge urged the wife to present witnesses to testify against the husband as she claimed.
