A man identified as Abdullahi Yada’u, has divorced his wife after she made it known that she will be voting for Buhari in the coming elections.
Mr Yada’u, who lives in Kanam LGA of Plateau State, told BBC Hausa Service that he divorced his wife due to her insistence on voting for Buhari
“I told her that she must not vote for him but she insisted which led to a quarrel which attracted the attention of our neighbors, I slapped her and told her to choose between voting for Buhari and staying with me. She ran away.
Later her parents called me and I narrated to them what transpired between us. But still my wife insisted on voting for Mr Buhari, that’s how I divorced her in the presence of her parents.”
Ibrahim Suleiman, the wife’s elder brother, said ;
“He really disgraced us. They have been having issues even in the previous election. She is the one that convinced him to vote for Buhari, now he insisted on voting for Mr Atiku Abubakar. We decided that we will not allow her to go back to him again,” he said.
