In fulani culture setting, when a man re marry, the bride (Amarya) will go and greet the first wife, to show respect,
The (First wife) seized this opportunity to attack the bride.
It could be hearld that the first wife wasn’t in support of the man marrying a new wife but all the pleads from her felt in to the deaf hears of the husband. Unfortunately the older wife seized that opportunity to beat her up without considering the population of the well wishers in the house.
Contacting some of the people at the event, a lady whose name is Shadiya said, the older wife has no any right to attack the new wife because in Islam, man is allowed to marry one, two, three or four wives ..So the woman is wrong.
Another lady Hajiya Mairo said, considering what what the older wife has done, this might lead to divorce between them because it’s seen as a great embarrassement to the family
On the basis of this however, some NETIZENS have started commenting on the shameful act as follows…
