He revealed that Haruna’s father played a prominent role in facilitating her marriage with the other person whilst they are both still legally married.

He further revealed that on August 6, 2022, the father-in-law facilitated another marriage between his daughter and one Jemilu Bahause while the marriage contract with him was still subsisting.

“Alhaji Haruna Danjuma, who is the father of my wife Awawu, to conceal the illegality, relocated her daughter and the new husband, Jemilu Bahause to an unknown location and they have since been living together as husband and wife,” Sule told the court.

Magistrate Abdulraheem Bello adjourned the case to September 26, 2022, for a hearing.
