Emir of Kano wants divorce severely punished

The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II has urged the Kano State Government to enact a law that will punish those who end their marriages on questionable grounds.

Mr. Sanusi lamented the spate of divorce in Kano State, and said there must be punitive steps to reverse the trend.

He said many residents end their marriages on flimsy excuses.

The Emir who spoke in Kano, Friday, noted that women are often the most affected after divorce.

The worst hit, he said, are the uneducated and the economically-disadvantaged whose marriages are ended by their husbands over matters that could have been resolved.

Mr. Sanusi said anyone found guilty of separating from his or her spouse without sufficient reasons will be appropriately penalized to deter others and help reduce the huge number of divorce cases in the state.

He also warned his subjects, district heads, ward and village heads against drug addiction, saying he will not hesitate to expel anybody found in drug addiction.
