“My client wants the court to dissolve her marriage with her husband because she can no longer fulfill her marital duties as a woman to him.
“ But she is willing and ready to return his N50,000 dowry paid before their marriage in year 2010,” he said.
The husband, Ibrahim Isyaku a top government official in Plateau State was not in the court but was represented by his counsel.

“ I want the court to give me more time to get more details of the case from my client who is presently out of the country on religious duty.
“After which I will give reasons why I think the court lacks jurisdiction to entertain the case,” he said.
