'My wife sleeps around without fear or shame,' man tells court

A ten-year-old marriage has been dissolved following an allegation by the husband that his wife sleeps around without fear or shame.

Broken marriage.

The President of the court, Chief Adelodun Oyegbenle, dissolved the marriage which produced three children due to irreconcilable differences between the couple, Mr Johnson and Mrs Esther Iyanda.

Johnson had approached the court in July to seek dissolution of the marriage over his wife’s alleged infidelity.

“My ears are full with stories of how she sleeps around with different men without shame or fear that I may get to know about.

“The situation made me to send her packing and now I want it to be official that she is no longer my wife, “he told the court.

In her response, the estranged wife denied the allegation of cheating, saying “he is the one that is not sincere with our marital vows.

“I have never done anything like what he says, instead he is the one who has slept with two of my friends.

“He sent me out and brought another woman two days after to take over my room, “she added.

In his judgment, the court’s President, Oyegbenle, said it was obvious that love no longer existed between the couple and they could not resolve the crisis.

He dissolved the union and granted custody of the two children to their mother.

Oyegbenle ordered Johnson to pay N10,000 monthly allowance to the court registry for the upkeep of the children.
