“But, after finally meeting with the boy’s father and having several discussions, he (the boy’s father) stated that his son would not be allowed to marry my daughter.

Yusuf confessed to the Sharia court that he adores Yunusa.

After hearing both sides, Judge Murtala Nasir ruled that Yusuf’s father should be encouraged to allow the children to marry.
