Civil Area Court I in Yola, Adamawa state has dissolved a 9 year old church marriage between Hilary Luka and his wife Veronica Yusuf of Michika Local Government Area.
The court ended the union as a result of the refusal of Hilary to continue to stay under one roof with Veronica as husband and wife.
Hilary told the court that he had since married another wife, and that he had promised himself that he will not be a husband of 2 wives at the same time.
Earlier, Mrs Veronica who dragged her husband to court, alleged that Mr Hilary who now lives in Lagos failed to take care of her and her 2 children.
Veronica who lives in Yola further alleged that on the 26th March, 2021, her husband went to Michika and took her children who were with her mother without her consent.
She urged the court to restraint him from abusing and beating her, and also asked the Honourable court to order him to return back the children to her.
On his part, the husband prayed the court dissolve the marriage as he will no longer continue to live with her because he had since married another wife.
But the wife who could not object to his prayers, said that the court can go ahead and dissolve the marriage since he had prayed for it.
It was this juncture that the court presided by Musa A. Shanu pronounced that the marriage between Hilary and Veronica stands dissolved, and ordered the registry to issue them with certificate of dissolution.
