‘I want it to be official that I am no longer his wife’

29 November 2016, 20:41

Iseyin - A Grade “C” Customary Court in Iseyin Council area of Oyo State on Tuesday dissolved 10-year-old marriage between Funso and Iyabode Akanji over alleged husband’s irresponsibility.

Delivering judgment, the Court’s President, Chief Adelodun Oyegbenle, said that the estranged couple had shown to the court that love no longer existed between them.

He also bemoaned refusal of families of the estranged couple to get matter resolved before it degenerated.

He thereafter dissolved the union accordingly.

The president ordered Funso to be paying N10, 000 to the court’s registry for the upkeep of the two children.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Iyabode had approached the court to seek dissolution over allegations of maltreatment, irresponsibility and lack of care.

She told the court that the union had produced two children, aged four and two, alleging that “he does not take care of his family and does not show love at all.”

“Since we got married, I have been taking care of the family all alone despite the fact that he earns more than me; he only drinks and flirt with his own money.

“I have been forced to leave our matrimonial home because of his attitude and now I want it to be official that I am no longer his wife,” she said.

Responding, Funso debunked all the allegations describing it “baseless”, saying: “she is just making excuses because she wanted to marry another person.

“I am fine by her decision, I have tolerated her enough; she can go for life, I don’t want to see her near me anymore,” he said.
