One Adeetan Adeoye, Tuesday sought for the dissolution of his marriage to his wife, Sekinatu, on the grounds that she partakes in widow’s benefits when he (the husband) is still alive.
Adeoye urged a Grade C Customary Court, Agodi, Ibadan, Oyo State to dissolve his 47-year-old marriage to avoid further embarrassment, molestation and provocation from the respondent.
Speaking before the President of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, the grandfather said his wife used to partake in widows’ benefits and abused him whenever he raised eyebrows on her actions.
He said, “she collected widows money and food, she replied me that I am a dead man when I asked her reason for doing that.
“She is a disobedient woman; I am tired of her victimisation and can no longer cope with her bad attitude since our togetherness is no more peaceful.”
But Sekinatu pleaded with the court not to dissolve the marriage that was already blessed with four grown up children.
