A Nigerian lady identified as Amina Hassan has been arrested for setting her husband’s house ablaze, as an alleged retaliation because he refused to grant her a divorce.
The incident happened just five weeks after their wedding in Shuware, Mubi North local government area.
According to the Police Public Relations Officer, Suleiman Nguroje, 20 years old Amina claimed there was a pre-wedding arrangement with her husband, Muhammed Auwal, for him to divorce her shortly after their marriage.
However, when she approached her husband Auwal with the request for divorce, he reportedly resisted and instead began assaulting her.
“We made an arrangement that he would divorce me after the marriage. I met him and pleaded with him to divorce me, but he remained adamant,” Amina told police investigators.
She further explained that due to the assault, she lost her temper and set the house ablaze.
According to reports, Amina had expressed her reluctance to go through with the marriage to her parents a few days before the wedding.
Despite this, her parents insisted on proceeding with the wedding plans, saying that they had distributed the invitation cards.
