A Sharia Court ll at Magajin Gari, Kaduna state, has ordered one Maryam Muhammad to refund the N20,000 dowry paid for her by Mansur Yakubu, her husband, as condition for divorce.
The complainant, who filed a case against her husband, told the court that she could no longer tolerate her husband and wished to divorce him through Khul’i (Redemption).
“I can’t live with this man because I can’t tolerate him anymore, as such I want Khul’i, I will return the N20,000 he paid as dowry,” Maryam said.

Khul’i is a form of divorce permitted in Islam, where a woman initiates divorce by returning the dowry she received from her husband.
She also urged the court to compel Yakubu to be a responsible father to their two-month old baby while in her custody and allow her to pack her belongings from his house.
The defendant, who said he still loved his wife, stated that he paid N25,000 as dowry, not N20,000 as Maryam claimed.
