A widower, Isah Sulaiman, has dragged his mother-in-law to a Magajin Gari Sharia Court in Kaduna State, over his late wife’s inheritance.

Sulaiman told the court his mother-in-law, Khadija Ibrahim, had allegedly confiscated his late wife’s inheritance meant for his children.

The plaintiff is asking the court to compel the respondent to hand over the house documents of his late wife, Aisha, to her surviving three children.

But the defendant told the court that the issue in question had earlier been resolved by another court after the death of her daughter in 2015.

She alleged that her son-in-law had filed a case against her three weeks after the death of her daughter demanding his share of his late wife’s inheritance.

Ibrahim added that the court had shared the inheritance according to the Islamic injunction in which the husband was given his own share.

“Before her death, Aisha had given her elder brother a car she had also inherited from her own father but which hadn’t been fully paid for.

“She asked her brother to finish paying the outstanding balance which he did and the matter has since been resolved by the court.”

She told the court that the only property under her custody was a house document belonging to her grandchildren which they got from the inheritance shared.

The judge, Mallam-Musa sa’ad, after listening to both parties, ordered them to present before him, a certified true copy of the first court ruling on the inheritance and adjourned the case to October 24. (NAN)
