- Super Eagles striker Ahmed Musa has reportedly divorced his wife Jamila
- Jamila was said to have frowned at the player's decision to marry a second wife
- A close source hinted that the embattled couple had been having disputes for some time
A family source who is close to Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa has explained the rationale behind Musa's decision for him to have divorced his wife Jamila after some domestic disputes between them in London.
NAIJ.com can report that trouble started in Ahmed Musa's house when the former Kano Pillars star decided to marry another wife named Juliet, but Jamila who is the mother of Ahmed Musa's two kids was not happy with the decision.
The source explained that Ahmed Musa's decision to marry a second wife is permitted by Islam, but efforts to convince Jamila to accept the second wife were futile as she refused.
“Ahmed loves his wife and would have loved to keep the union especially for the sake of their two children.
“He did everything to make Jamila see reason with him but the woman rejected all overtures.
“Musa is a devout Muslim and a responsible husband and instead of keeping mistresses he chose to legally marry a new wife as permitted by his religion.
“His own family members and even his mother endorsed his plans and there is no going back.
“Ahmed’s mother was in the UK a couple of times to speak with Jamila to accept his son’s decision but she declined,'' the source explained.
