A certain man has filed a divorce suit against his wife at the Grade ‘C’ Customary Court sitting at Owode-Academy, in Ibadan South-East Local Government area of Oyo State.
Mr Aderemi Ishola, a baker, sought the court to dissolve the 11-year-old marriage between him and his wife, Joy over her alleged promiscuity and unruly behavior.
Ishola, who wants the marriage which has been blessed with two children namely, Ayomide 11 and Ademide 6, dissolved, claims that Joy was the first woman he ever slept with.
Ishola said: “I want this court to separate us because the defendant is having an extramarital affair.
“Not long ago, I caught her with a man-friend she brought to my house, believing that I wouldn’t come home that day due to the nature of my work.
“Aside, she is also a troublesome person. She always causes trouble in the neighbourhood. Due to her troublesome nature, I have sent her packing once and later reported her to the nearest police station.
“My Lord, I don’t want her to kill me at a tender age. Please separate us.
Reacting in the same vein to the prayer of her aggrieved husband, Joy, a hairdresser accepted the allegations and also called for the dissolution of the marriage.
She said: “I want this court to separate us because I am tired of the marriage with no happiness.
“The plaintiff is a womaniser. He doesn’t sleep at home. He only has sex with me once in five months. He doesn’t care about the well-being of the family.
“He always abandons his family for days. He is impotent. Our church members and family have intervened in the matter on many occasions, but all to no avail.
“My Lord, I am no longer interested in the marriage. Please, separate us.”
In his ruling, the court president, Mr Owolabi Oluokun, ordered the defendant and the plaintiff to bring the two children to court, while both of them should come with their parents and with possible evidence that could assist the court in establishing the truth in the case.
The court further adjourned the case till March 16.
