He said that even their children and other members of the family had intervened in the matter at various times but she would not bulged, adding that same people have also pleaded on her behalf when they saw that he was serious in ending the marriage.
“My wife has promised to change and I have forgiven her,” Mustafa told the court when thewy appeared on Thursday.
The President of the Court, Awos Awosola, advised the couple to go and put their home in order.
“If you take care of your wife and make her happy, she will also go to any length to please you,” Awosola said. [myad]
