A witness, in a Gudu Abuja Grade 1 Area Court who happened to be the Landlord of a couple in a divorce case, Quadin Ibrahim, has told the court that though he never experienced the young couples fight, but he had seen the lady ran out of their house nake.

Testifying at the Court on Wednesday, in a divorce case involving a 14-year-old housewife, Hadiza Bala and her husband, Abubakar Usman, the witness said “I was a witness to an incident where she ran out of the house naked on one occasion and later her parents came and took her to their house,” he said. Though he insisted that he never saw them fighting.

The Judge, Ado Muktar, ordered Mr Ejike Ejifor, counsel to the plaintiff to produce witnesses who have knowledge of the abuse as claimed by Bala.

Earlier, the judge disqualified the two witnesses who testified on her behalf, saying: “their testimonies lacked substance of the abuse as claimed before the court.”

He further adjourned the case until July 11, for continuation of hearing.

Bala had told the court on June 14  that she would not go back to her estranged husband for fear of her life.

She sought for the dissolution of her one year marriage to Usman.

“I am afraid for my life. I cannot live under the same roof with my husband due to his constant physical abuse.

“Only the living can marry.” she told the court.

Earlier, the 14-year-old bride presented two witnesses to prove her case before the court.
