A divorce seeking woman told a court that her husband is so high in libido he could kill her with sex.
"My Lord, I am begging this honourable court to dissolve my marriage because my husband is hell bent on killing me with excessive sexual desire and I am not ready to die now."
That was the plea of a middle-aged woman, Soliat Adekojo, while pleading with the Grade ‘C’ Customary Court sitting in Mapo, Ibadan South-East Local Government Area of Oyo State, to end her five years old marriage to Musibau Adejoko because of his high libido.
Soliat, a petty trader residing at the Amuloko area in the ancient city, told the court that since she got married to Musibau, she has not had any rest even after she gave birth to their only child.
“I wish to divorce my husband because he is fond of sex. All he knows in his life is sex and is not an ordinary desire, but marathon sex. He used to have sexual intercourse with me at least six days of the week and it may be twice a day. He does not give me rest of mind. He monitors me around.
Whenever I refused to allow him, he would beat me mercilessly. I have told him on several occasions that I am not fit for marathon sex, but he refused to listen.
On any occasion he had sexual intercourse with me, he uses his singlet and pant to clean my private part and whenever he did this, I would not be okay and may fall sick sometimes.
On July 4, I told him I would not be able to continue to have marathon sex with him again because of my health; he panicked immediately and told me I will have to leave his house, and that before I leave, he would surely deal with me.
I called my brother, Biodun Adebayo, to inform him about the situation of things. He came to my rescue and my husband’s mother told my brother that he should take me away from the Musibau's because she could not handle the situation.
I later got to know through his mother that I am the Musibau's ninth wife. My Lord, I am fed up with this relationship. Please, separate us. I don’t want to die now.”
Musibau who claims to be an Alfa (Muslim cleric), also agreed to the divorce but asked the court to give him custody of the boy the marriage has produced because his wife cannot cater for the child.
President of the court, Chief Agbaje Olasunkami granted the parties their request:
“Having observed the evidence given by both parties, the court rules thus: the divorce on repayment of bride price is hereby granted with immediate effect.”
