Couples in Court for committing adultery
by dayod247 « on: April 09, 2014, 08:56:16 AM »




A farmer, Jafar Umar, and his new wife, Rukayat, were on Tuesday arraigned in  a Kosubosu Area Court in Kwara State for alleged adultery.

The duo was arraigned for adultery contrary to sections 387 and 388 of the Penal Code Law following a complaint by one Bashiru Haruna.

Bashiru said he married Rukayat on January 5, 2013 at Kuburufu Village in the Baruten Local Government Area of Kwara State.

The complainant said sometime after the marriage, Rukayat took permission to travel to Shiya Village and failed to return home since then.

β€œTo my surprise, I learnt that Rukayat had remarried and had conceived for another man (Umar) without seeking a divorce from me,’’ he said.

The complainant   sought the relief of the court to grant an order enabling him to claim the dowry and other expenses incurred in the marriage.

Umar, on his part, admitted that a relationship existed between him and Rukayat, adding that she had a child for him.

Rukayat, however, denied the allegation.

In his ruling, the presiding judge, Mallam Ahmed Yahaya, admitted the two accused persons to bail in the sum of N100, 000 with a surety each in like sum.

He adjourned the case till April 15 for hearing.
