An Idi-Ogungun Customary Court sitting at Agodi in Ibadan on Wednesday dissolved a 10-year-old loveless marriage between a 30-year-old woman, Alimot, and her 73-year-old husband, Nafiu Azeez, citing accusation of adultery by the husband, Vanguard reports.
Alimot had filed a divorce suit on the grounds that her husband was in the habit of accusing her of having extra-marital affairs.
The court’s President, Chief Mukaila Balogun, dissolved the union and awarded the custody of their only child Alimot. Balogun ordered Azeez to pay N3, 500 as monthly allowance for the maintenance of the child and warned both parties against fomenting trouble.
Earlier, Alimot had told the court that the respondent had always accused her of sleeping with “anything in trousers”.
“He is a jealous man; I dare not greet other men because of his suspicion about my movement.
“My husband always accused me of infidelity because he felt he was too old to satisfy me sexually, but I was okay with the way he performed on bed,” she said.
Alimot described her estranged husband, a retired solder, as stubborn, who did not give her rest of mind.
The respondent, Azeez, however, agreed to the dissolution of the marriage, saying “she does not listens to instructions.”
“I warned her several times to stop her bad behaviours but she refused.
“My Lord, she used to go to the market in the morning and return in the evening, she packed out willingly on Dec.31, 2016 and did not return till date.’’
Azeez urged the court to grant him custody of their child, saying “ my child is my only hope because I have no other child in life.” SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US VIA EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO RECEIVE NEWS VIA OUR WHATSAPP, KINDLY TEXT +234 701 056 0394 TO ADD YOU CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR NEWS UPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON TWITTER FOR INSTANT NEWS UPDATE: @247NGNEWSUPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO READ NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE RECEIVE INSTANT NEWS UPDATE VIA OUR BBM BROADCAST: D3EDEFDF PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
