Jan 16, 2015-  “My Wife Hates & Starves Her Stepchildren” – Man Asks For Divorce From Wife Of 18 Years

A 55-year-old businessman, Saliu Adesokan, yesterday pleaded with an Igando Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve his 18-year-old marriage over wife’s alleged maltreatment of her stepchildren.

He told the court that his wife, Jumoke, detested his children from another woman, saying she always handled them in a rough and cruel way.

“My wife always maltreats my children, she hates them to the extent that she only cooks for her children and refuses to give her stepchildren food.

“She promised to take care of them before I married her but she has refused to keep her vow.

“Due to frequent fighting and rivalry with them, I rented another apartment for my children but she still refused them to visit me.”

The petitioner, according to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), described his wife as a proud and arrogant woman.

“My wife is so full of herself and arrogant, she does not respect me and she talks to my parents rudely.

“She does not wash my clothes, she will tell me to hire a house help. So, I wash my clothes myself.”

In 2011, he said he sought the dissolution of the marriage, but because she was then pregnant, he withdrew the suit and also thought that she would change.

Saliu begged the court to separate them, that he was no longer interested in the union and that the love he had for her had faded.

Defending the allegations, Jumoke Adesokan, a 37-year-old trader, denied the allegation of maltreating her stepchildren.

She said the children were too rude and troublesome and that one of them slapped her when she cautioned her.

“My husband’s daughter slapped me when I corrected her, she and her siblings always fight me,” she said.

Jumoke said it was her husband that asked her to stop washing his clothes.

She claimed that she used to cook for her husband and stepchildren and that she always respected her husband and his parents. The mother of two begged the court not to grant her husband’s wish as she was still in love with him. The court president, Mr. Ruphus Adeyeri, adjourned the case till January 27, for judgement.

  1. It is mor likey dan not dat dis woman is guilty as accused. No gender disrespect, but in my over-3 decades of experience, greater no. of women rough-care 4 children frm wombs other dan theirs. Yet they confes facile luv 2 their father. I dnt jst get dis.

    Dat selective wickednes is ingrained in their nature as a gender. It is not limited 2 humans alone. Just consider a hen with her young chicks. Wat hapns wen a chick frm anoda mother unluckily strays in2dis hen’s fold? Massacre!

    It jst makes me wonda Y d most-beautifl thing dat God created would b so “ungodly”.

  2. How old was this woman when the man married her, she is now 37yrs and you have stayed for 18yrs, the sins of your first wife is visiting both of yo

  3. Mr. Janoon what if the woman is not guilty. Most of these step children are always insulting and troublesome. Sometimes it boils down on how the husband address the issue between them and their step mother.And if I may asked what happen to their mother? If they are divorced that means the man himself has a bad attitude to women but if what the man said is true that means the woman is bad. So husband and wife matter should not be judge one sided.

  4. Imagine 18yrs old, is what she sees our leader are doing, If our leaders are corrupt why will the girl be exempted, mr man the only advice I will give to you is to vote for change, vot for Buhari and she we change immediately, because the wind of change is everywhere, buhari till 2023 till goodluck knows that he’s shoeless

  5. Ok? Does it really matter who is lying or telling the truth? The man said he is no longer interested in the relationship and you are stupidly begging the Judge not to dissolve the marriage. Marriage is a union of two people and the minute one party wants out, it is wise to separate.
    If he wants out and you refuse to let go it could result in some ugly/dangerous situations. Obviously you cannot live together in peace anymore so why not just separate and let peace reign instead of the obvious hatred surrounding the family which could lead to casualties/or death in future?

  6. This woman is possessed. She needs deliverance. I am sure these children are now adults and can cook for themselves. Children pray well then learn to cook for yourself and get a job.

  7. YOU NEED TO RETURN THE CHILDREN TO THEIR MOTHER , BECAUSE YOUR NEW WIFE IS NOT YOUR NANNY OR SLAVE,

    YOUR CHILDREN FROM YOUR FIRST WIFE IS YOUR BUSINESS , YOU AND YOUR EX WIFE SHOULD BE ABLE TO HIRE A NANNY TO LOOK AFTER THEM.

    IF BOTH OF YOU CAN NOT LOOK AFTER THEM, YOUR NEW WIFE IS NOT A SLAVE.
    I DO NOT SEE THE REASON WHY YOU REFUSED TO LET THEM LIVE WITH THEIR MOTHER.

    YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO BRING THE PROBLEM BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR EXWIFE TO YOUR NEW WIFE .

    YOUR NEW WIFE IS NOT YOUR EX WIFE SLAVE TO LOOK AFTER THE CHILDREN.
    SORT OUT YER PROBLEM WITH YOUR EX WIFE.

  8. your wife can not wash your cloth impossible wash them by your self of hire someone your chil cannot lay han on your wife and your children are grown up to provide for them self anychild over 18 is an adult take care of your wife settle the matter between them so that his will not repaet itself how many women are you going to divorce think…..
