In his response, the counsel for the respondent, Umar I Umar, said the claim of the plaintiff was beyond the issue of dowry alone and argued that she held some properties belonging to his client.

However in a previous response, on the point of law, Counsel for Ganduje told the court that the plaintiff would not relinquish her rights for divorce.

Delivering the judgement, the trial judge, Mallam Abdullahi Haliru, ruled that the evidence adduced during the cause of trial proved that the plaintiff received the above sum.

According to him, the court gave the judgment based on what is supposed to be the basis of the marriage, which is the dowry.
