“My husband still drinks beer and refuses to perform the five times obligatory Islamic prayers. He has also refused to observe the Muslim fast. I pray the court to dissolve my marriage on grounds of his drunkenness, refusal to fast and dislike,” she said.

The woman further told the court that she got married to Abdullahi over 30 years ago and both have six children.
