A 60 year old man has had his marriage dissolved over allegations of infidelity on the part of his wife.
A 60-year-old man, Saliu Yekini, has begged an Ojo Customary Court sitting in Lagos, to dissolve his marriage to his 34-year-old wife, Latifat, on the account that she is promiscuous and sleeps around with boys.
But the wife, on the other hand, accused Yekini of being irresponsible, excessive drunk, threatening her life and not caring for her and their child.
“My husband is only looking for a cover up to justify his irresponsibility. I am also fed up with the marriage and do support the divorce."
The court President. Joseph Ogunmola, therefore granted the wishes of the couple and dissolved the marriage, citing his ground on lack of love in the union.
“The court is not in doubt that the marriage between Saliu and Latifat Yekini has broken down irretrievably. The court hereby officially dissolves the marriage.
The custody of a one-year-old baby girl from the marriage is hereby awarded to the respondent, under the supervision of the sister-in-law.
The petitioner is directed to pay N5,000 monthly to the respondent for feeding of the baby and should also take charge of medical and education needs of the child."
