Muhammad, who lives on Zaria road, Kaduna, told the court that her estranged husband divorced her four months ago with two male children.

“When I gave birth to our second child, he did not buy anything for the child, my parents bought me eight pieces of wrappers which he sold and used the money for his personal use.

“Few months after I gave birth, he divorced me. I went to his house and packed all my belongings.

“When I went for the second time to pack the rest of my belongings, I did not see my mattress”, Muhammad told the court.

The defendant, Salisu Ismail, also a tailor, whose address was not mentioned, told the court that his ex-wife stole his chairs when she went to the house to get her belongings.

“When I came back home from work , I discovered that she went away with my chairs. I went and complained to her parents and demanded for my furniture back.

“Her parents told me that their daughter said I sold all the wrappers they bought for her when she gave birth to our last child. I left and never went back again,’’ Ismail said.

The Judge, Dahiru lawal, confirmed the divorce and ordered the defendant to give the complainant her mattress back by May 13.
