A mother of three, Oluwayemisi Ajakaye, got an Ibadan, Oyo Customary Court to dissolve her 12-year-old marriage to her husband, Segun, on the ground that he compares her to a pig, goat and calls her Prostitute.
Oluwayemisi, in her testimony to the court said: “he also calls me a goat and a prostitute.
“He beats me and I have evidence of the injuries he has inflicted on me.
“He accuses me of falsely of infidelity.
“For many years now, Segun never allowed me a moment’s rest. He accuses me of sleeping with my siblings, neighbours in the market and even our Pastor.”
Oluwayemisi Ajakaye alleged that Segun once callee her mother on the phone, threatening to kill her in their presence.
When the case was called for hearing today, July 29, the husband was neither present nor represented to defend the allegations leveled against him.
The bailiff informed the Arbitrators that Segun was duly served hearing notices on three separate occasions.
The Judge, Chief Ademola Odunade, led two other arbitrators: Alhaji Suleiman Apanpa and Alhaji Rafiu Raji, to grant the petitioner’s prayers.
Odunade awarded custody of the three children to the petitioner and ordered Segun to pay a monthly allowance of N15,000 for the children’s upkeep.
