Umar, through’s counsel, Mr Ibrahim Nata’ala, told the court that Aishatu must pay N3 million due to the present economic recession in the country.

“If she failed to pay the money, the court should allow the couple to settle with their relations on how best to settle the matter.”

The presiding Justice Faruk Ibrahim adjourned the case till March 27, for continuation of hearing.
