A housewife, Mrs Florence Oludare, has approached an Ado-Ekiti Customary Court seeking the dissolution of her 35-year-old marriage to husband, Ojo, over alleged battery and threat to life.
The mother of five children told the court that her husband does not fulfill his responsibilities as a husband explaining that two of her daughters got impregnated at a tender age, because they were not going to school, and were wandering about and living a wayward life.
She then appealed that the marriage be dissolved.
Her husband on the other hand denied the allegations but saying its been over 20 years since he last beat her.
He told the court that the petitioner was cheating on him.
“I had to challenge her to stop dating the man but she refused and followed the same man to Akure for one week without my permission,” he said.He urged the court to dissolve the marriage claiming his estranged wife packed out of their home 8-years ago to marry the man she claimed was her employer.
Daughter to both, who was a witness in court however revealed that her mum lied her dad.
