It has been revealed that Nigeria and Leicester FC of England forward, Ahmed Musa has divorced his wife, Jamila because she refuse to allow her husband marry a second wife.
According to media reports, Super Eagles vice-captain, Musa, 24, is reportedly ready to carry on with his life without Jamila whom he got hitched to in 2013. The marriage produced two children, Ahmed Jr and Halima.
Reports coming out of the player’s camp say he is in love with another woman whom he wanted to take in as a second wife, a decision that was flatly rejected by Jamila.
It would be recalled that the Super Eagles striker recently had a run-in with the Police in the United Kingdom after concerned neighbours alerted them of domestic disturbance at his home in Leicestershire.
He was however released without charge after questioning by the authorities for over two hours, an incident that drew a warning from his Premier League club.
According to PM News, the fracas was caused by the player’s decision to marry another woman.
“Ahmed Musa has divorced his wife. He gave her Saki Uku (a final divorce notice),” the source said on Friday.
“She is already back home in Kano trying to get her life together again.”
Musa has been on the fringes at Leicester City in recent times, with new coach Craig Shakespeare seemingly unconvinced with the former CSKA Moscow man.
While Ahmed Musa is yet to release an official statement regarding the divorce, it is quite unusual for Northern Muslim women to shy from polygamy since it is a socio-cultural norm in many parts of Northern Nigeria. We await an official statement.
