While testifying in a divorce petition filed against her by her husband in Ilorin on Thursday, a 40-year-old housewife, Amudalat Afolabi has told an Ilorin Area Court that her husband, sent her out because she refused to terminate a six month-old pregnancy.
“My husband sent me away from our matrimonial home because I refused to terminate the six pregnancy am carrying,” she told the court.
The woman who described her husband, Tajudeen as “an irresponsible man”, did not oppose the dissolution of the 20-year-old marriage, adding that she was tired of being enslave by a useless man.
50-year-old Tajudeen, a residence of Edun Area in Ilorin, had prayed the court to dissolve his marraige because of his wife’s alleged infidelity and amorous behaviour.
He said the marriage was contacted in 1996 and had produce five children, Monsurat,18; IB.rahim,16; Mohammed,12; Lateefat, 10; Fatimoh, eight; and they were all living with him because their mother had left the matrimonial home.
“I am fed up with her waywardness. She is not stable and always frame excuses for her actions. I pray the court to put an end to this union because my wife can kill me as she move around town like dog,”
He, therefore urged the court to dissolve the marriage and award him custody of the children.
AbdulQudri IB.rahim, the Area court judge, dissolved the marriage between the two parties and issued the certificate of divorce to the complainant.
