The petitioner wanted divorce on the grounds of lack of care.
The mother of four, however, said it was her husband who distanced himself from the family, especially the children.
She alleged that there was a time her husband called their second child to come and see him and since then he was yet to be found.
Her words: “My husband called our son, who was studying medicine at the university to come and see him and up till today, he could not be found.
“It is seven years now that the boy, who is supposed to be 29-year-old this year, disappeared.
“Efforts by me to find him proved unsuccessful. Your lordship, please help me ask my husband what he did to my son.
“He does not care about the welfare of our children.
“He does not even know where the children are schooling nor does he pay their school fees. I pay the fees.”
The respondent said she satisfied her husband in all ways.
She implored the court not to grant her husband’s wish for the dissolution of their marriage “because I still love him.”
Arokoyo had told the court that his wife, with whom he had four children, did not take care of him.
“I live like a bachelor. I wash my clothes, cook for myself,” the man said.
The 65-year-old petitioner said his wife was stubborn, adding that she assaulted him.
“My wife is stubborn, she does not respect me. There was a day she slapped me. I beat her up and she fainted,” he said.
The petitioner said Mojirayo goes out at will and comes back anytime she likes.
“She can leave home and return after two weeks without letting me know her whereabouts,” he said.
The husband said things were moving on fine for them until when he was no longer working.
He said his wife suddenly became hostile.
According to him, his wife had turned their children against him.
He asked the court to dissolve the marriage, saying he no longer loved her.
The Court President, Mr. Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case till September 26 for judgment.
