For allegedly failing to pay for his children school fees and feeding, a housewife, Mrs Ramota Azeez on Wednesday, April 20, 2016 dragged her husband, Taiwo Azeez before a Customary court sitting in Ikire, Osun state.
Ramota, a mother of two prayed the court to dissolve her marriage with Azeez stressing that beside failing in his paternal responsibilities, Azeez also abandoned her in his family house.
The middle age housewife accused her husband of taking care of his younger wife in his rented apartment and had abandoned her and their two children with his parents.
“My husband only take care of his other wife and her children while abandoning me and my kids in his family house to suffer.
“I am tired of living alone, I want my husband back, if he won’t let us all stay together, then please dissolve our marriage,” Ramota stated.
On his part, the defendant said he only wanted Ramota to stay in the family house pending the time he completes his own building.
He said: “I am also staying in a room with the other wife, I just want her to manage in the family house for now.” He added.
Ramota however disagreed with his plan, insisting that the court should grant the dissolution if he would not allow her stay with him.
In his judgement, the President of the court, Chief Afolabi Olufemi urged the parties to give peace and settlement a chance.
He adjourned the matter till 4th of May, 2016 in order for the couple to reach a truce.
