January 10, 2017 – Nigerian Man Divorces Wife For Converting To Christianity From Islam
Mrs Kehinde Adewunmi, a 50-year-old housewife today told an Igando Customary Court, Lagos that it will be too hard for her to find another man to marry her at age 50 if the court grants her husband’s divorce petition.
The mother of 4 broke down in tears this morning while on her knees begging the court not to allow her husband, 57-year-old Jamiu Adewunmi to divorce her.
Jamiu, businessman on the other hand urged the court to dissolve the 24-year-old marriage because his wife converted to Christianity from Islam without his permission.
Instead of dissolving the marriage, the court’s President, Mr Omilola Adegboyega reconciled the couple after series of counselling.
He struck out the case admonishing the couple to give peace a chance and live in love and harmony for the future of their children.
The court successfully reconciled the couple and urged them to go and live in peace and love.
