In what looked liked a Guinness World Book of Records stuff, a woman, Laure Sulaiman, yesterday got her wish from a Kaduna Sharia Court II, Magajin Gari, to dissolve her two-day-old marriage to Babangida Dan-Auta of Maraban Jos.
Laure may have beaten top American celebrities such as the Kardashian family whose sibling, Kim, married basketball star, Kris Humphreys, for 72 days last year.
Another celebrity, Britney Spears’ marrrriage to Jason Alevander lasted just 55 hours about nine years ago.
In Kaduna yesterday, there was a condition that Laure pay back the dowry she collected.
Laure had on December 10 last year asked the court to dissolve the marriage, saying she was no longer in love with Dan-Auta.
The husband, however, told the court that the wife was hiding something as she had demanded for divorce only two days after their marriage.
Laure had told the court: “I don’t love him and I want this court to grant me divorce. I am ready to return the N10,000 he paid as dowry. I cannot be obedient to him as a wife.’’
Dan-Auta disputed the wife’s claim on the amount paid as dowry.
He said that he paid N17, 000 and not N10,000.
He said that the woman, who was divorced before their marriage, had also lied to him on the number of her children.
According to Laure’s husband, though she told him she had three kids, he later found out that she had given birth to eight children from a previous marriage.
He noted that the woman left their home two days after the wedding, asking him to divorce her.
The Khadi, Malam Ibrahim Inuwa, had adjourned the case three times before acceeding to the request for divorce.
He had earlier given the couple up to yesterday to reconcile their differences.
At yesterday’s sitting, the couple, however, opted for divorce, saying that they were unable to resolve their differences.
Inuwa, therefore, ordered Laure to pay back the N17,000 dowry by tomorrow (January 4) before the marriage could be legally dissolved.
