Broken marriage.


A frustrated housewife, Jelila Nurudeen, has urged an Ojaoba Sharia Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State, to dissolve her marriage to her husband, Nurudeen Olanrewaju, on account of sexual starvation.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the mother of three told the court that in the past seven years, her husband has failed to make love to her, something that has made her feel inadequate.

In a petition filed at the court, Jelila alleged that her husband has subjected her to emotional torture by starving her of sex for seven years.

“My lord, all the interventions made so far by this court has yielded no results as Olanrewaju has failed to turn a new leaf.

I may soon run mad if the court fails to separate us because I can no longer withstand seven years of sexual drought.

Should I start visiting the homes of some of the committee members set up to reconcile us to meet my sexual desire?

Please, I am ready to walk away from this union because Olanrewaju has already married to another wife who is now satisfying his emotional desire.”

But the respondent, a staff of Nigeria Tobacco Company in Ibadan, denied the allegations leveled on him by his wife as well as rejecting the divorce suit.

He told the court that he has been living happily with his wife and promised to still make her happy.

The President of the court, Sheikh Ahamad Tiamiyu, therefore advised Jelila to give peace a chance by allowing the committee raised on the matter to do their work, while adjourning the case till November 17, 2016, for a progress report.
