I Can’t Continue Again, I Caught My Wife Several Times ‘Knacking’ Her Boyfriend — Nigerian Man Cries Out
A man has cried out to Lagos Customary Court how unfaithful his wife is.
An Igando Customary Court in Lagos has dissolved a 16-year-old marriage on adultery charges filed by a husband against his wife, saying he could no longer tolerate her infidelity.
NAN reports that the court’s President, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, granted the prayer and dissolved the marriage with a declaration: “Both of you henceforth cease to be husband and wife”.
Koledoye said that since the petitioner had insisted on a divorce, after several interventions, the court was left with no option than to grant him his prayer, despite his wife’s claim that she still loved him.
“Each of you should go on his or her separate ways unmolested; the court wishes both of you well in your future endeavours”, the President ruled as he gave the custody of the children to the petitioner, Ola.
He ordered Ola to pay severance of N150,000 to his wife for her to move on with her life.
Earlier, the husband, Mr Sola Ola, had petitioned the court, seeking dissolution of his marriage over his wife’s adulterous acts.
In his submission, he said: “I got information from people in our community that my wife was having extra-marital affairs, but I ignored it since there was no evidence to support it.
“In March, I received a call from somebody at 12:30 am to come and see my wife with one of her lovers at their hiding spot in a hotel.
”I rushed to the scene and caught her and her lover in a compromising position, touching each other,” he said.
According to the petitioner, since that day, his wife had refused to return home.
“Whenever we have a misunderstanding, she would bring out either a knife or a bottle threatening to stab me. My brothers seized three knives from her at different times; those knives are still with them,’’ Sola told the court.
