12 She said Nurudeen also denied her entry to the house when she returned home late.

13 Nimota said the infidelity allegation was false and an attempt to paint her in a bad light.

14 “He’s short-tempered.

“I consent to the dissolution of the marriage.

I’m sick of being hit, I’m sick of the accusations,” she said.
