A woman, Foluke Ojo, has approached a magistrates’ court sitting in Akure, the Ondo State capital, seeking the dissolution of her marriage with her husband, Busuyi Ojo.
Foluke told the court that she was tired of the union due to her husband’s excessive demand for sex.
The couple, who have been married for 14 years, said they were no longer enjoying the union and had agreed on the dissolution.
Folake alleged that her husband was no more taking care of the family.
She declared that she was no more in love with her husband, asking the court to grant her prayers.
The applicant alleged that all her man wanted was to always have sex, adding that anytime she refused to have sex with him, she would be beaten up by her husband.
She further explained that after beating her, he (Busuyi) would still go ahead and have sex with her .
She alleged, “There was a day my husband beat me up. It was my mother that rescued me and took me to a hospital,”
Busuyi, however, denied the allegations levelled against him by his wife.
He alleged that his wife always disobeyed him at home, adding that she did not behave like a responsible wife .
“She dresses like a prostitute, she wears any dress she likes, forgetting that she is a housewife,” Busuyi said.
The husband urged the court to grant his wife’s request and terminate the 14-year-old marriage.
Having heard from both sides, the President of the Magistrates’ Court, Mr. Ayodele Omotola, in his ruling, said the relationship had broken down, but urged the parties to allow peace to reign.
The court president ordered the respondent to pay a sum of N5,000 to the court for the food allowances of their children and then adjourned the case till May 10, 2017, (today) for judgement.
