A man has urged a court to dissolve his marriage because his wife is promiscuous and is regnant for another man.
A bitter husband, Samson Muse, has begged an Ojo Customary Court sitting in Lagos, to dissolve his three-year-old marriage to his wife, Tunrayo, because the pregnancy she is currently carrying does not belong to him.
Muse, a businessman, accused his wife of being unfaithful, adulterous and very troublesome, regretting why he even married her in the first place.
In his statement in evidence, Muse said:
"My wife fights a lot, uses dangerous weapons to attack me, she is too troublesome, does not take care of our son, I’m no longer in love with her.
A woman that sleeps about with different men is not worthy to be a wife; in fact, the seven month-old pregnancy she is carrying is from an unknown source.
I cannot live with a woman who has become promiscuous, sleeping around, in fact, she has become too troublesome and does not have any regard for me.
I need this court to dissolve our marriage and also grant me permission to be in possession of my son because she cannot take good care of him.
My son, legally named Faruk is currently referred to as ‘Park well’ at the motor parks, I cannot take it any longer, I need quick action."
However, the 38-year-old Tunrayo, denied the allegations from her husband, saying it was after he abandoned her that she had to seek help from other men.
"My husband does not take care of me, he has carried out deals of over N2 million in my presence. His sister is the Deputy Iyaloja of Okoko Market, yet he cannot even pay my dowry.
I cannot say who owns this pregnancy, but I cannot release my son to him."
