Oct 31, 2013 – Husband Divorced Wife Who Insulted Their Landlord In Ekiti
Joseph Idowu, a 31-year-old man has divorced his wife of 5 years, Omolara who insulted their landlord while settling a dispute.
Joseph filed for divorce from his wife and the mother of his 2 children on August 31st, 2013 at a Customary Court in Ikole Ekiti.
He told the court that Omolara insulted his landlord when he was trying to settle a dispute between the couple, and later moved out of his house because she got annoyed for being corrected.
The woman, who denied the allegation, gave her evidence on oath to the effect that she did not insult their landlord.
She accused the plaintiff of conniving with the landlord to sack her by giving flimsy excuses, so that he could get another wife.
Omolara stated that she packed out of her matrimonial home because of her husband’s habit of beating her, and to escape being killed.
She, however, consented to the divorce and prayed for the custody of her second child who was a year and nine months old.
The president of the court, Mrs Yemisi Ojo, dissolved the marriage.
She upheld the prayer of the defendant on the custody of the second child and ordered both parties to be jointly responsible for the care, maintenance, support and education of the second child.
She ordered that the plaintiff should single-handedly cater for the need of the first child in his custody.
It’s obvious this man is out of love for his wife.
