Man Accuses Wife Of Extortion Aided By Police
"We have been married for about 11 years now and he has refused to pay my dowry, I am a food seller and I live at Olorunsogo Akanran area in Ibadan.
"We have a child who is 10 years old. My husband beats me up at all times which made me leave his house and moved in with my parents. I have been in my parents’ house for about eight months now.
"I decided to divorce him because the last time he beat me up, blood gushed out from my face, mouth and head and I don't want to be killed.
"After that scenario, he forced me down from a bike at Oje and took away my handbag containing a weekly contribution of 25,000 naira as well as the money I realized from my business which I don't know the exact amount," Adeola Hammed narrated in court.
When a woman claims to have gone through all of these in the hands of her husband, then the marriage is about to hit the rocks.
But her husband, Kazeem Hammed had a different story to tell the Customary Court Ile Tuntun Oja Oba in Ibadan when asked for his side of the story.
He explained that his wife always connives with police to arrest him and extort money from him and that the last incident led to him collecting her handbag.
"She is an adulterous woman and her mother encourages her. There was a day we were together at about 4:30am and she wanted to go out at that time, I decided to follow her to the bus stop because it was still very early.
"Her phone rang, and she refused to pick her call, so I was wondering who could be calling her at that time of the day.
"The phone rang again, and she picked. So, I asked her who the caller was, and she replied that it was one of her customers.
"I called the number back and the caller told me a different story. Even before this incident, she receives calls from various men," he concluded.
Apparently, there are many issues for the court to understand, especially the allegation of extortion involving the police.
So, after hearing from both parties, Court president, Chief Olasukanmi Agbaje Henry adjourned the case for further hearing.
