The Judge, Muhammad Wakili, dissolved the marriage according to Islamic Law, following Oyetola’s prayer for divorce on grounds of lack of love.

Wakili also ordered Oyetola to observe “Iddah”, which is a-three month period of observation after the judgment before contracting another marriage.

Earlier, the petitioner told the court that she got married to Afolabi under Islamic law in 2013, and which union produced two children.
