Kano: Hizba arrests woman for marrying two husbands

Kano State Hisbah Board has arrested one Hauwa Ali for allegedly marrying two husbands.

Hauwa, 37, lives in Kumbotso Local Government Area of the state.

Public Relations Officer, Alhaji Lawan Fagge, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday, that the suspect was arrested on Monday.

He said the woman was apprehended after her first husband, Bello Ibrahim, 45, who was critically ill and taken to his village for treatment, reported the case.

“After waiting for some time she thought he was dead and proceeded to marry the second husband, Bala Abdulsalam”.

Abdulsalam, 40 years old, claimed to have paid a dowry of N20,000 to her.

“The first husband, the father of her six children and they, were living in their matrimonial home when she went ahead to marry another man”, the statement added

The spokesman said Ibrahim, after recovering from the sickness, was brought back to the house only to find out that his wife had married another man.

“The woman at the moment has three or four children for the second husband. She claimed the first husband had divorced her but he denied ever divorcing her,” Fagge said.

The woman would be charged to court after conclusion of investigation.
