Kano woman identified as Malama Khadija, reportedly divorce her husband and married her daughter’s boyfriend in Rano Local Government Area of the state.
The incident happened after the daughter of the woman, Aisha, rejected her boyfriend’s proposal.
Earlier, the woman’s relatives told Freedom Radio that they were accusing the Hisbah Commandant of Rano LGA of marrying off their daughter without their consent and that they didn’t even know where she was.
Also speaking to the Radio Station, the woma said she was living happily with her new husband. She added that her marriage was not prohibited in Islam.
She explained that after realising that her daughter (Aisha) decided not to marry her former boyfriend, she felt that both of them should not lose him.
According to Malama Khadija, “I didn’t do it with ignorance. I contacted clerics and they said it is not prohibited in Islam. When I contacted him (the new husband), he agreed, but my parents and relatives refused to do the marriage rites. That was why I decided to go to Hisbah and we are happily married now.”
Khadija’s uncle, Abdullahi Musa Rano, said they refused to allow her to marry the man because she deliberately dissolved her first marriage in order to marry her daughter’s suitor who was not qualified to be her husband.
“She mounted pressure on her husband to divorce her just to marry the man. We can’t do this shameful thing in our family which was why we refused to join them in marriage. We are not happy with what Hisbah did and we want them to bring out our daughter. We want the general commandant and the state government to look into the matter.”
