Wife threatens to re-circumcise husband


A resident of Kano named Malam Ali, has approach a Sharia Court sitting in Rijiyar Lemo seeking intervention to stop his wife from re-circumcising him.

Malam Ali was reported to have told the court that his wife has been threatening him for long that she would renew his circumcision, adding that she even bought a sharp knife and kept it inside the house.

He said since then he has been sleeping with one eye whenever he is in her house, as he has two wives.

After hearing the complaint from the husband, the court presided over by Malam Sunusi Danbaba Daurawa adjourned the matter till October 4, for further hearing.

Narrating his ordeal to journalists after the court session, the husband said he checked her room and took away the sharp knife to save himself but he is not yet comfortable.

“I don’t know what happened; she just said she must renew it. I still love my wife and we are living peacefully. This is the only challenge I am facing with her.

“That is why I decided to report her to the court if they can stop her,” he said.

However, the wife refused to address journalists on why she is attempting to renew his circumcision.
