Man Petitions Police, DSS Over Alleged Wife Snatching

A man identified as Istifanus Umaru, a christian, has petitioned the police, Department of State Services (DSS), and the Adamawa state Chief Judge, over the abduction and snatching away of his Muslim Fulani wife, Amina, by a Fulani man, Bello Bakari, whom Umaru claimed wanted to terminate their marriage.

While seeking the state government’s intervention on the matter, Umaru affirmed that Bakari, a muslim lawyer, had abducted his wife with the view of marrying her (Amina), because Bakari considered their union as a taboo.

Umaru who also disclosed alleged threats to his life, said that Bakari had openly threatened to end the marriage by unleashing the Fulani militia on him.

According to Umaru, Bakari insisted he was not fit to marry Amina on religious grounds as he (Umaru) is a christian.

From the petition, Umaru claimed that Bakari had told him that he (Bakari) had the blessings of the state’s Muslim Council to disrupt their marriage, and that the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) was aware.

However when contacted, Bakari refuted all claims as he explained that he was informed by the lady’s relations that Amina and Umaru were merely cohabiting and not legally married.

Umaru, reacting to this has also said that he was legally married to Amina, of which her parents initially approved their union.
