She added that she then contacted his new husband’s family for the marital rites to be performed, in her words she stated;
“I didn’t do it with ignorance. I contacted clerics and they said it is not prohibited in Islam. When I contacted him (the new husband), 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”
Khadija’s uncle, Abdullahi Musa Rano, said they felt it was wrong for her to marry her daughter’s suitor after deliberately dissolving her first marriage.
He said they refused to allow her marry him because he was not qualified to be her husband, but she still went ahead.
“She mounted pressure on her husband to divorce her just to marry the man. We can’t do this shameful thing in our family which was why we refused to join them in marriage. We are not happy with what Hisbah did and we want them to bring out our daughter. We want the general commandant and the state government to look into the matter,” he stated.
