It was reported by Daily trust that the incident happened in Rano Local Government Area (LGA) after the lady’s daughter named Aisha turned the man down.
The woman, Malama Khadija, said she decided to make the move as she realized that both of them should not lose him, noting that she is equally as beautiful as her daughter.
Giving reason for her action, Khadija revealed that she did not do it without making consultations. She said she contacted clerics before reaching out to her new husband’s family.
In her words, “I didn’t do it with ignorance. I contacted clerics and they said it is not prohibited. When I contacted him, he agreed, but my parents and relatives refused to do the marriage rites. That was why I decided to go to Hisbah and we are happily married now.”
The woman reportedly mounted pressure on her husband to divorce her and she got married to her daughter’s rejected boyfriend despite her family’s approval.
