One Jimoh Zubair-logun, a father-in-law to Aminat Baba-Elesin has written a “set free” letter to the Area Court at Center-Igboro, Ilorin, to allow his daughter-in-law divorce his son, Ismail Jimoh-logun.
However, the presiding Judge, Abdulkadir Ahmed, objected to the letter, saying that it is not in compliance with the rules of Islamic marriage law, thereby expunged.
Ahmed said that after careful perusal of affidavit deposed to by the petitioner, dated April 28, which was in compliance with the rules of the court, that ordered the respondent to be served.
He said that the service was made by substituted means and delivered same to Jimoh Zubair-logun, the father-in-law, at Logun compound, Oloje, Ilorin.
The court thereby adjourned the case to May 25, for judgment.
Earlier, the petitioner said that since the respondent was deemed to have been aware of the matter, but chose not to appear in court, thereby urged the court to dissolve the marriage. (NAN)
