A Mararaba Upper Area Court in Nasarawa State on Wednesday dissolved a five-year-old marriage between one Ruth Makama, and her husband, Samuel Samura, over lack of care and battery.
The judge, Ibrahim Shekarau, dissolved the marriage in the interest of peace, saying that the two parties are no longer husband and wife.
He said “The parties are to maintain peace all the time. Any violation of the order of this court will amount to contempt and of course attract serious consequences.
“Also, the parties should collect their divorce certificate from the registrar’s office,’’ he added.
Ruth told the court that she was married to her husband in 2013 and the union between them did not produce any child.
She said the respondent never cared for her, often disrespected and was always beating her.
Ruth pleaded with the court to dissolve the marriage, stating that there was no longer love in the marriage.
The respondent, who was absent in court, sent a letter consenting to the divorce.
