Ask him to release my panties, wife begs court

By  |  6 Comments
An estranged wife, Toyin Ogunminiyi, yesterday, urged a customary court sitting in Ikole-Ekiti to help effect the release of six pairs of her panties in her husband’s possession. Other personal belongings the complainant sought for retrieval from her husband, Tope, include two native dresses, one jeans skirt and a plastic basin.
The 30-year-old woman also prayed the court to dissolve her 20-year-old . She claimed that her husband was constantly beating her and tearing her dresses in public, in addition to accusing her of adultery. The complainant, who described her husband as a drunk, said he had abandoned his responsibilities to the family.
She, however, sought the custody of their four children, urging the court to compel her husband to give her N20,000 monthly feeding allowances. The plaintiff, who denied the allegation of adultery against her, said she engaged in menial jobs in order to cater for the family.
She told the court: “My husband, a commercial motorcyclist, always spends his money on alcohol and his concubines. He does not take proper care of the children and I. I am seeking dissolution of our association as well as the release of my pants in his house.” However, in defending himself, the husband, who did not deny his drinking habit, accused his wife of adultery. He said: “I do not want this woman again, she is adulterous.” The President of the three-man panel, Mrs Yemisi Ojo, adjourned the matter till February 6 for further hearing.

    Very funny headline
    If the man is truly beating the wife and not performing his responsibility to his wife and children, then the court should listen to the woman’s cry.

    The headline got my attention but there is something they are not telling us. Whatever they should settle their differences as couple and not washing their dirty linel in the public.
