Man ordered to re-marry wife he infected with HIV

A middle-aged man has been ordered by an upper Sharia court sitting at Sabon Gari, Nigeria, to re-marry the wife he divorced after infecting her with HIV/AIDs virus.

Abdullahi Ahmad was dragged to the court by his ex-wife, Umma Usman, who told the court that the defendant had divorced her and asked her to vacate his house after infecting her with the disease.

The victim informed the court that both of them had been living together as a couple for about 13 years and that she had several children with him before she later found out that he is HIV/AIDs positive.



Umma asked the court to quash the divorce letter issued to her by her husband and compel him to re-marry her since he is the one that infected her.

In his verdict, the Judge, Malam Farouk Ahmad, granted the complainant's plea, canceled the divorce letter issued to her by the husband and ordered him to immediately re-marry her.

Judge Ahmad said under Islamic Sharia Law, "it is binding on the husband to stay with the woman for the rest of his life being the one responsible for her getting an infection that has no known cure."

He ordered him to take good care of the woman henceforth.
