OKUTA (KWARA)—A mother of two, Jemilat Duro, in Okuta, Kwara State, has sought the dissolution of her six year-old marriage to her husband, Mohammed Duro, over frequent beatings.

The plaintiff, yesterday, pleaded with an Okuta Area Court to separate the union that produced two children.

In his reaction, Duro urged the court not to grant the relief sought by the plaintiff, saying: “I still love my wife and I do not want to divorce her.”
In his ruling, the presiding judge, Malam Ahmed Yahaya, adjourned the case till May 15 for reconciliation between the two parties.
