Woman Drags Father to Court For Not Allowing Her Marry Her Lover

A 25-year-old woman, Rose Bulus, on Thursday dragged her father, Josiah, to a Shari’a Court sitting in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State for refusing to allow her to marry a man she loves.

The complainant, who lives in Kaduna Central Area,  told the court that she converted to Islam, to marry the man she chose but her father refused.

“I want the court to compel my father to allow me to marry the man I love and if he refuses, the court should do the needful’’, she prayed.

Josiah, the father of the complainant told the court that he was not aware of his daughter’s relationship with any man and was surprised to see a court sermon.

Josiah  said, “The supposed suitor has never visited me to ask for the hand of my daughter hand in marriage,” he said.

The Judge, Malam Dahiru Lawal after listening to both parties said, “Even though marriage is a union between a man and a woman, parent’s consent is equally needed before the union takes place”.

He ordered the suitor and his people to appear in the court.

He adjourned the matter until March 4 for further hearing.
