A Customary Court sitting at Mapo in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Monday, dissolved the union between one Ganiyat Oladeji and her husband Ahmed Oladeji.
Source gathered that the wife, Ganiyat, prayed the Court to dissolve her marriage. She said the reason for her wanting a divorce was due to the constant beating she gets from her husband.
She told the Court that she can’t continue to live in her husband’s house as her life was in immense danger.
She said, “What he did recently was even terrible because after unleashing mayhem on me, he was not satisfied, he ran after me with an axe in an attempt to behead me, but I managed to escape.”
“Worst still, Ahmed usually tells me to abort any pregnancy I had with him due to his irresponsibility.”
In his testimony, the respondent denied all the allegations against him and agreed to the dissolution of the marriage, alleging that his wife doesn’t care for his children as she goes around sleeping with other men.
Upon hearing the couple, the President of the Court, Chief Ademola Odunade, dissolved the marriage on the grounds that there is no love between them and therefore both should go their separate ways.
He however, awarded custody of the 2 children to Ganiyat, and ordered the Ahmed to pay the sum of N10, 000 as their monthly feeding allowance.
He also told the respondent to take care of the children’s education and other welfare matters.
