Muslim Man Dragged To Court For Marrying 5 Wives

A businessman by the name of Awaisu Jibril was dragged to a court in Rigasa, Nigeria for marrying 5 wives contrary to the teachings of Islam. According to the prosecutor in court on Wednesday, 12th April 2023,  Musa Abdullahi who was the community leader had reported the matter to the Rigasa Police Division.

The defendant claimed that he had only four wives since he divorced the fourth before marrying the fifth. He, however, admitted that his fourth wife had not finished her waiting period (Iddah) which entailed three menstrual cycles she was supposed to observe to render the marriage completely dissolved.

Naja’atu Kabir who was the fifth wife avered that she had no idea  Jibril was still married to the fourth wife. She further stated that she {Naja’atu) was one month pregnant?

Per the judge, Malam Anas Khalifa, it was wrong to add another wife knowing that the fourth had not finished Iddah. He held that the fifth marriage was invalid as he was not permitted to have more than four wives per the Islam tradition. He asserted, “Therefore, he will continue to take care of Naja’atu Kabir and the pregnancy until she gives birth; he will also take care of the child after birth because the child is his’.

The court realised, after thorough investigation and testimony by the witnesses, that the fourth defendant was ignorant of the ruling of Islam regarding marriage and divorce.

The judge ruled that he (the child) shall inherit his father because he was not conceived out of wedlock but as a result of ignorance and lack of investigation from both parents. The case was adjourned to 19th April for a ruling on the defendant.
