A Nigerian Sharia Court ordered two young lovers to marry or it would do so without their parent’s approval.

Halima Yunusa sued her father for refusing to agree to her marriage to Bashir Yusuf.

Monday, a court in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, heard the case.

Yunusa, from Kasuwan Magani, Chikun Local Government Area, told the court she loved Yusuf but her parents wouldn’t allow them marry.

Ibrahim, Yunusa’s businessman father, acknowledged to the court he knew about their “intense love”

He said that the young guy hadn’t finished all marital procedures, thus he didn’t give him his daughter’s hand.

 “He came to me and expressed his desire to marry my daughter. I told him to come back with his parents and family members.

“He is yet to return. After about a year.

“He came back after a year and took my daughter and ran away with her for three days.

“We later heard they came back and went to my sister’s house.

“We informed the Police and both of were arrested and disciplined,” Ibrahim told the court, as quoted by NAN.

The businessman continued that after the release of the two love birds from police custody, they ran away again to spend two weeks in Abuja.

“But when I finally met with the boy’s father and had several discussions, he (boy’s father), said he would not allow his son to marry my daughter.

“At last, the boyfriend’s father later took us to the district head of our village where agreement were drafted and signed by all of us and our witnesses to caution my daughter to stay away from his son,” Ibrahim recounted.

Having examined both sides of the matter, the Judge, Murtala Nasir held that Yusuf’s father should be advised to allow his son, Yusuf, to marry Yunusa, whose father, in principle, is not against the marriage.

The judge warned, “If he refuses, we will get them married in the court even without his blessings,” and then adjourned the case until May 23, when Yusuf’s father is expected to appear before the court for final judgment.

However, Nasir advised Yunusa to reconcile with her parents and relatives and seek forgiveness and blessings.
