An 18-year-old nursing mother, Maryam Magaji, sued her alleged lover, Badamasi Salihu, 20, for refusing to marry her.
“I reported the matter to our district head and he agreed to marry me after I deliver, but he denied me after giving birth to his child, saying he cannot marry me,” she said.
However, Salihu denied being responsible for her pregnancy and claimed they were nothing more than friends.
“She normally comes to my shop where we gist, crack jokes and laugh. I see her as a friend, that’s all,” he said.
Malam Musa Sa’ad, the Judge on the case adjourned the case till March 26.
