Wife wants to dissolve her marriage over 'sexual starvation'

Latifat Adeleke, trader and mother of two, has asked a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan, to dissolve her marriage of about 9years with Adetola Adeleke, over alleged sexual starvation.

In her petition to the court, Latifat said that her husband, Adeleke who is a spare parts dealer, aside from neglecting his traditional responsibilities of catering for her and the two children, had no time for her.

“Adeleke has over three to four years now, failed in his responsibilities as a husband towards me and as a father to his two children. The worst of all, my Lord, is that he has kept away from having sexual intercourse with me which greatly saddens my heart."

“We no longer stay together and the bond of love between us has disappeared,” Latifat complained bitterly.

Adeleke, who denied all the allegations levelled against him by his wife told the court that he was happy to part ways with Latifat claiming that she was adulterous, extravagant and a party enthusiast.

“My lord, this year alone, Latifat has dubiously obtained close to N300, 000 from me in the name of celebrating birthday for our children. I once caught her red-handed with her lover on our matrimonial bed. When I asked her if what she did was right or not, there was no remorse, even when it actually happened on our matrimonial home,” he said.

"She has been involved in all manners of atrocities; this is why I called it all off with her. Please, my Lord, I don’t want her to take custody of the eight and six year-old children, because she doesn’t stay around; Latifat keeps going to parties,” Adeleke further narrated to the court.

After listening to both parties, the President of the court, Mr. Ademola Odunade, adjourned the matter till Jan. 27, 2016 and directed both parties to produce evidence to support their claims.
