Buy me a car or forget about wedding: Bride-to-be Tells Fiancé



Few days to their wedding, a 40-year-old-man, Mohammed Abubakar of Hayin Rigasa, on Thursday, dragged his bride-to-be, Umulkair Ja’afar, before a Shari’a Court in Magajin Gari, Kaduna, for alleged assault and intimidation. According to Abubakar’s complaints to the court, the arrangement for the wedding had gone far when Umulkair told him that he must buy her a car before the ceremony could hold.

In his words: “We have started making arrangement of getting married, but she requested that I must buy a car for her before she will marry me… I told her that I don’t have the money because I just bought my new car.” This, Abubakar further told the court, has brought an end to their wedding arrangement.

The complainant further told the court that “After this development, the woman started sending insulting and intimidating text messages to me.” Pointing out that he had witnesses, who would testify on the issue, he continues “I have shown them the messages she has been sending to me. I want to bring them before the court to testify,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Presiding Officer of the court, Ibrahim Inuwa, adjourned the case to October 18, for the continuation of hearing. Also, Umulkair’s side of the story was not heard.
