“I hereby order the petitioner and the respondent to go their separate ways after 12 years of marriage.

“The petitioner should refund the dowry of N55,000 to the respondent, and take custody
of one of their three children,” Suleiman held.

The divorcee had told the court during the hearing of the suit that she had just been managing to stay with her husband without any feelings for him.

She had submitted that her total lack of love for her husband made her to develop depression, hence she wanted an immediate divorce from him.

All efforts to convince her to remain in the marriage had failed.
