Nigerian state raises tabs to curb divorces

Conservative state hopes that $300 fine will discourage some from divorcing their wives.

If you live in the northern Nigerian state of Kano, it will cost you $300 to divorce your wife.

The new law has been introduced to curb the rocketing divorce rate in the state.

It is a lot of money in a place where most people get by on just $2 a day.
