A 51-year old woman, Mrs. Yinka Adewole, approached court to dissolve her marriage with her husband, Temitope, whom they have been married together for 25 years.
The embittered woman approached the customary court in Lagos t on Thursday seeking for the dissolution of her marriage with Mr.Temitope Adewole on the grounds that her husband was a thief adding that he was an unrepentant womanizer who had strong appetite for other women.
The civil servant who lives at No. 30 FMPWH Yard, Seme Road in Badagry, Lagos, was visibly livid with anger while praying for the dissolution of her fruitless marriage with Temitope saying that she was tired of her husband’s stealing habit and infidelity.
“My husband is a thief; he steals from me and doesn’t perform his responsibilities as a husband. At least if I don’t have a child of my own, I should have rest of mind, enough is enough”.
The President of the Court, Mr. Sakirudeen Adekola, who did not hesitate in granting the request made by Yinka, said it was clear that love no longer existed between the couple advising them to move on with their lives individually.
“It is clear that all efforts to reconcile the parties had failed and in that circumstance, it was meaningless to further advise them to keep living together.
The President said that any party who was not satisfied with the judgment can appeal within 30 days and warned that the violation of any of the orders made by the court amounts to contempt and shall be so treated with the appropriate sanction”.
