Asiya, the daughter of the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, had approached the court, seeking it to dissolve her marriage on the grounds that she is fed up, and stated her readiness to return the sum of N50,000 received as dowry.
In his response, Uba said it was beyond the issue of dowry alone and argued that Asiya held some properties belonging to him.
Delivering the judgement, the trial judge, Mallam Abdullahi Haliru, said the evidence adduced during the cause of trial proved that the plaintiff received the sum of N50,000.
According to him, the court gave the judgment based on what is supposed to be the basis of the marriage, which is the dowry.
The judge ordered Asiya to return the dowry.
Addressing the court after the judgement, the counsel to Uba, prayed the court to supply him with records of the proceeding, and indicated his intention to approach the Upper court to test the analysis of the judgement.
