Fresh reports have emerged online about why Super Eagles player, Ahmed Musa, 24, divorced his wife, Jamila.

Earlier we reported that the Leicester City football star had divorced his wife, and was also set to marry his Lagos based ‘Queen’, Juliet

A family source has revealed some more details on why Musa divorced the mother of his two kids.

Family sources told New Telegraph that the decision to part ways was reached by the two parties after efforts to reconcile them failed. The source added that the former CSKA Moscow forward ’s decision to marry a second wife was permitted by Islam but was vehemently rejected by Jamila.

”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.

Several family members mediated in the crisis but the two parties were not ready to shift positions. They constantly had altercations and it was affecting them.

A lot of things have been said about Ahmed on this matter which is not correct, he is a gentleman and this issue is constantly affecting him even his career. The wife insisted she could not cope with another woman but Musa was adamant about going ahead with it.

He 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.”

In addition, the source gave details about Musa’s arrest by the UK police, claiming it was as a result of altercations with his wife that were non-physical.

According to the source, the last heated argument was after Jamila queried Musa, for posting the picture of the new lady on his Instagram page, and anger over him calling her ‘my queen’.
