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