Court Dissolves Marriage Over Wife's Late Night Outings
She loves to go out, so she would go to any length to keep her mobile phone battery fully charged and running.
These are not bad attributes but Mrs Seun Oyebola seemed to have taken hers too far that it became a burden to her husband.
So her husband, Olasunkanmi Oyebola, dragged her before an Ikorodu Customary Court, Lagos, on Thursday, seeking a dissolution of their five-year-old marriage.
He cited her stubbornness and late night outing, which surprisingly she did not deny.
Mr Oyebola (48), a village head in Mowo Town, Ikorodu, also accused his wife of persistently charging her cell phone in the neighbourhood.
“My wife is very stubborn, arrogant, disrespectful and likes late night outing.
“She usually goes to neighbours to charge her phone and will not come home early enough to attend to her family.
“I have warned her severally, I have endured her a lot, but she refused to heed to my warning, I’m totally fed up, please separate us,” he pleaded.
The Court’s President, Mrs Funmi Adeola, dissolved the marriage based on irreconcilable differences.
“I hereby dissolve this marriage as reconciliation proved abortive, the petitioner should pay 50,000 naira compensation to the wife.
“The custody of the children is hereby granted to their mother, Mrs Seun Oyebola, 40, an auxiliary nurse, pending the outcome of the family court decision,” she said.
The court also ordered the petitioner to provide for the upkeep of the children, including their education.
