According to the Jigawa police spokesperson, Audu Jinjiri, on December 31, 2018, Halima left her matrimonial home because of a misunderstanding with her husband.

Jinjiri said attempts made by Jafaru to convince Halima, his first of two wives, to return were unsuccessful. The couple reportedly have six children together.
