An Ado-Ekiti Customary Court dissolved the three-year-old marriage between Mr Mayowa Ogunrinde and his wife, Busayo, over frequent fighting and disrespect for in-laws. The petitioner, Ogunrinde, 35, a civil servant, also told the court that his wife has no respect for him.
“Most of the time, I do all the domestic chores while my wife will always watch me.” The petitioner told the court that the respondent was fond of slapping him whenever there was a misunderstanding between both of them.
He claimed that though he fulfilled all his financial responsibilities as a husband, he always went hungry, as his wife would never fulfill her duties in the kitchen. The petitioner pleaded with the court to grant his application for dissolution of his 3-year-old marriage to Busayo, to enable him enjoy peace of mind.
He prayed the court to award the custody of their daughter to Busayo, but with a clause that he would take custody once she turned six years.
