    So sad, I really feel sorry for Tijjani but that will serve the both parents right. Other will learn never to subscribe to forcing their children to marry someone they don’t want.

    Parents should stop forceful marriage to their children bcos there’ll be no joy in the home therefore defeating the purpose of God for the institution.

    Marriage should be by choice and not by force. Please learn from this.
