The court heard that her marriage of 15 years was marked with the continuous stealing of her money and acts of irresponsibility on his side.

She said, “I shouldered the responsibility as regards feeding, school fees payment and other welfare of the kids, instead of him to appreciate my struggle for the care, he was in the habit of stealing my money.

“He beat me as he likes and parked out of our matrimonial home to impregnate another woman outside.

“Your Honour, I am tired of his shameful acts, victimisation and embarrassment,” she said.

However, Kazeem denied all the allegations levelled against him by his wife, imploring the court to deny Mary her divorce request.

Kazeem added that he would have no one to assist him with the care of their three kids if the divorce suit was granted.
