The divorce between Asiya Ganduje and her husband Inuwa Uba is getting messier by the day.
Uba told a Shariah court sitting at Filin Hockey, Kano that his wife broke into his house and carted away vital documents, vehicles, keys and other property.
Frontline News Online has reported that the governor’s daughter prayed the court to apply the Islamic principles of khul’i to dissolve her 16-year-old marriage with Mr Uba, as she is “fed up with the marriage”.
She also promised to return her N50,000 dowry even as Uba challenged the jurisdiction of the court. The judge ruled in Asiya’s favour, assuming jurisdiction.
The documents allegedly carted away by his wife include a certificate of occupancy of House No. 5 Ballaveux Residence, Life Camp, Abuja; a certificate of occupancy of House No. 2 STB Quarters, off State Road, Kano and; a certificate of occupancy of No. 3 Tamandu Road, Kano (Amani Event Center).
Others are title documents of ASIL Integrated Rice Mill, Gundutse, Zaria Road, Kano; title documents of many plots land in Kano and Potiskum, Yobe State and; a CCTV control system/decoder taken from No. 2 STB Quarters, Kano.
Online news portal Daily Nigerian reports that the vehicles allegedly carted away by the governor’s daughter are Toyota Prado SUV 2017 model; Toyota Previa 2015 model and Toyota Avensis 2019 model.
But counsel to Asiya-Balaraba Ganduje, Ibrahim Nassarawa, denied knowledge of the documents and vehicles, allegedly carted away by his client from their home in his counter affidavit filed before the court.
