March 11, 2016 – Husband Sends Wife Packing After 10 Years Of Childless Marriage
Adeola Ake, a Lagos housewife, has pleaded with an Alimosho Customary Court, Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos, to dissolve her 10-year-old childless marriage. Adeola, 46, told the court that her husband, Toyin, who failed to appear in court after several summons, had evicted her from his house. “My husband threw out my belongings because I do not have a child for him.
Anytime he throws out my property my parents will come and beg him, assuring him that God will still bless me with a child. But finally, he threw out my property on February 12, 2013 and warned me never to come back.
He said that anytime he sees me in his house, that day would be my last day on earth.’’ Adeola said that she noticed that Toyin changed six months after their wedding.
“In fact, he has refused to take up his responsibility. My husband stopped giving me money six months after our wedding. I feed and clothe myself.
He always rains abuses and curses on me and my family.’’ Adeola, however, asked the court to dissolve the marriage as there was no love lost between them.
“Please dissolve the marriage that has nothing to show for now and in future.” The President of the court, Alhaja S.O. Mumuni, adjourned the case to March 17 for judgment
