Man seeks dissolution of 30-year-old marriage

09 September 2013, 21:35

Ado-Ekiti - A 60 year-old husband, Abdullahi Saka on Monday prayed a Customary Court sitting in Ado-Ekiti, to dissolve his 30-year-old marriage to Iyadun Abdullahi, for allegedly committing adultery.

Saka told the court that apart from committing adultery, his wife was frequently fighting him and some of their neighbours.

He said that the 30-year-old marriage had produced two males and two females, who are now grown up.

Counsel to the petitioner, Ajibade Abubakar, told the court that neither Mrs Iyadun Saka nor her counsel had appeared in court since their first appearance in 2011.

Ajibade said that the estranged wife had since returned all her husband’s property in her possession, ``which shows that she is no longer interested in the marriage’’.

The Court’s President, Joseph Ogunsemi, ruled that there was nothing the Court could do now since the defendant was absent or not present in the Court at the time of its sitting.

He adjourned the case to Oct. 28 for further hearing.
