When you know that you’re not ready for marriage, why not just stay single and enjoy your runs life?
I found condoms in my wife’s bag and she could not give a satisfactory explanation how she came about it,’’ a man told an Ibadan Customary Court as the court dissolved the 7-year-old marriage.
The Mapo Customary Court dissolved the union between Sikiru Alabi and his wife, Basira, on the grounds of prostitution and adultery.
The husband had told the court: “Nemesis caught up with her recently when I met a man on her deeply engaged in se xual intercourse right in my house. I was mad, but Basira quickly pleaded with me, promising not to do it again.
“Though, I forgave her, but she is still neck deep in adultery.”
According to NAN, Mr Alabi, an automobile mechanic in the metropolis had approached the court, seeking an end to his marriage to Basira, a hairdresser at Idi Arere area of Ibadan.
Alabi said Basira was also engaged in prostitution and had continued to rain curses on him and his relatives.
Basira did not deny the allegations, she said: “It is true that there is no more love between I and Alabi.”
Basira pleaded with the court to grant her the custody of the child after dissolving the marriage.
But the judge ruled that: “It is in view of the circumstances surrounding the issue at hand that the court decided to put an end to the relationship between Alabi and Basira.
“Alabi shall take custody of the five and a half year-old child produced by the union, while Basira should be free to see the child in court anytime she wants.”
The President of the court, Ademola Odunade, stated that a cheating wife is a “deadly” person.
