I can’t tolerate further beatings from my wife, man seeks dissolution of 32-year-old marriage
On Wednesday, a farmer, Williams Famuyibo, prayed the Mapo Grade ‘A’ Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve his 32-year-old marriage to his estranged wife, Sola.
Mr Famuyibo, who resides in Ibadan, said he could no longer tolerate beatings from his wife.
“My lord, due to Sola’s unhealthy attitude and meanness towards me, I am now living with my brother.
“In fact, I don’t have peace of mind because she doesn’t take care of me.
“I had five children before I married Sola in 1990, but all of them are living with my other relatives as a result of Sola’s repulsive attitude,” Mr Famuyibo said.
Despite being briefed on hearing notices served on her, the wife was neither present nor represented by any counsel in the matter.
President of the court, S.M. Akintayo, directed the court bailiff to notify the respondent of the next adjourned date.
Mrs Akintayo adjourned the suit until May 26 for further hearing.
