'Ordinary Pant, My Husband Cannot Buy For Me' - Amina
An Ilorin Area Court on Thursday witnessed the bitterness of a woman that was fed up with her marriage.
Amina Sulaiman was in no mood to bottle it in when she told the court how she had suffered in her marriage because her man could not take care of her.
She said that her husband, Ibrahim Babaoja, was so poor that he could not even afford the cost of her underwear.
This, for her, was no longer acceptable, as she begged the court to dissolve their seven-year-old marriage.
She told the court that she had been saddled with all the family responsibilities, and this had become unbearable.
“Our marriage is blessed with two children, but to eat in the house is a problem.
“He will not pay the children’s school fees; he cannot even afford to give me money for my underwear.
“There is always chaos in the house and I can no longer bear it or tolerate his attitude and lack of care.
“I pray the court to put an end to this marriage,” she begged the court.
The respondent, must have seen the embarrassment coming as he refused to show up in court to defend the allegations.
The presiding judge, Mr Abdul Quadri, however, said that the respondent had earlier sent a letter of consent to divorce.
Quadri ordered the dissolution of the marriage on the ground that both parties had agreed to it.
