May 11, 2016 – “My Wife Fights In Church, She Is Adulterous – Lagos Businessman Opens Can Of Worms At Igando Divorce Court


A bizman seeking to divorce his wife on grounds of adultery had his prayers answered on Wednesday when a Customary Court at Igando, near Lagos dissolved his marriage to Ganiyat Falana, 37.

Ganiyat and Dare Falana were until the dissolution of the union, married for 15 years.
Delivering judgment, the President of the court, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, said he was convinced that the couple could no longer live together as the petitioner had insisted on divorce after several interventions.

“The court has no choice than to dissolve the union; in spite of the fact that the wife still claims she loves her husband.

“The court pronounced the marriage between Dare Falana and Ganiyat Falana dissolved today, both parties, henceforth; cease to be husband and wife,” Omilola ruled.
Dare, 40, a businessman, had approached the court, seeking the dissolution of the marriage because of infidelity and threats to his life.

The estranged man, who described his wife as adulterous, claimed to have caught her with a man friend in his room chatting and eating.

“I came back home to pick something in the morning and I met my wife with her lover inside our room eating food bought from an eatery.

“My wife is always threatening my life with dangerous weapons as she chased me with knife in our street to stab me.
“She is a good fighter. Her hobby is fighting. I have on at least five occasions bailed her at the police station.

“She fights with friends, neighbours, even in the church and I had to leave that church for her because of this shameful act,” said Dare.
Ganiyat, however, described Dare as fetish, claiming that he had killed the foetus in her womb.

“He gave me Suya to eat when I was eight months pregnant and the baby in my womb started to breath faster, I rushed to the hospital but delivered a still birth,” she said.
Ganiyat, a mother of three, who did not object to the dissolution, told court that her husband was fetish.

“I saw my bra inside my husband’s brief case, I queried him but he said he wanted to take it to his church for prayers.
“He also brought a handkerchief home and gave it to me to clean my private part and return to him but I refused.

“He has been bringing home different types of soup and other liquids for me to drink which I also refused because I do not trust him.”
“Apart from his fetish nature, he has also turned me to a punching bag.’’
She said that her husband had always blamed her for his predicaments.

    Who do we believe now. The husband claimed the wife used to chased him about with a knife and the wife on her own part claimed the man has turned her into a punching bag at home.

    Hummmm… When I read things like this as a bachelor I get scared about this marriage hullabaloos.

    Here, I can clearly see that Love, Trust, Care and peace is no longer present in their midst and has given room for hatred, distrust, animosity, crises and infidelity leading to seperation.
    May God help METU, D Hunter and all the bachelors on this site not to get entangled with somebody that will be fighting us at home and chasing us about to kill us.
    Remember Lowo‘ wife.

    I take a stroll…

    Lolz@D Hunter. Is there really a man who is not scared by the prevalence of domestic wars between husbands and their wives these days? Maybe it’s time for holy monks all over the world to teach us what they call sublimation: a spiritual exercise that converts all sexual drives in an individual into a meditative, a creative or a physical output. Would that solve the problem? Imagine a world bereft of all sexual feelings! That would be a perfect world in deed.

    On another level, and a very serious one, divorce causes me a great deal of thought. I keep wondering what jurisdiction that any court of law has on marriage to be able to make or dissolve one. Marriage, is it not a spiritual ordination? Was it not God Himself who said let no man put assunder in what He had joined together? Would it not be safer for a man, just as a had taken his wife to the altar for marriage, to take same wife to the altar if they could not leave as man and wife any longer? Is this not the only way that we could let God sunder the union by Himself, since He had warned that no man should do that for Him?

    Hence, in view of all these questions, should a court really divorce a couple?

    My loud thoughts.

    When both man and wife agree to the “asundering rites” there is really no option by my reckoning because they will just not try to accommodate each other again. So rather than commit felony or murder each other it is better they go their separate ways.

    It is sad though.

    No more love. What these two used to appreciate in themselves is long dead. Go your sperate ways to avoid wasting each others lives.
