She turned down all moves for reconciliation, saying that her husband was trying to ruin her life and that of their two children.

Mutiu, in his defence, did not agree with the divorce, claiming that he still loved the plaintiff and was not ready to allow a broken home for the sake of their two children.

He promised to change for the better and make effort to provide for the plaintiff to make her and the two children have better future.

In his judgment, Chief Mukaila Balogun, the President of the court, said that evidence of both parties before the court had proved that the couple no longer love each other.

Balogun, therefore, dissolved the marriage and ordered that the plaintiff to take custody of the two children of the union.
