God forbids a woman from checking her husband's phone - Nigerian soldier writes

A Nigerian soldier, Bilyaminu Ladan Mada took to Facebook to share his thoughts about privacy in a Muslim marriage.  The soldier stated that God permitted men to marry up to 4 wives if they wish to.  Bilyaminu also stated that God forbids a woman from checking her husband's phone, while he can check hers. He said the reason for this, is because the man is at liberty to marry more than one wife.  He wrote;  Good Afternoon ladies and gents. Sorry, I just want to drop this here. For the Muslims, God the Almighty permit a man to marry up to 4 wives if he so wish and can do justice. So dating a lady outside doesn't mean/qualify that am cheating on my wife. For the fact that she is the only one at home shows that I can bring three more.  Cheating  is when u are having extra marital affair pls. Ladies that feel their husbands are cheating on them because they are dating another girl aside having them as wives, my question to u is "is ur husband having 4 of u?&
