An auxiliary nurse Mrs. Olabisi Akinleye has dragged her husband, Hammed, to a Lagelu Grade C Customary Court Iyana-offa for allegedly jailing her mother in the police station.
The wife who prayed the court to dissolved their seven year old marriage told the court that she was no longer interested in the marriage because of the mistreatment melted out to her and her mother by the husband.
According to her she said that her husband locked her mother up at police station for 24hours after lying to the police that I had stolen his money and packed all his properties to my mother’s house
Olabisi said her husband was also untrustworthy having lied before their marriage that he had been married to another woman but lost her to a car accident.
“He played the helpless widower and begged me to marry him.
“However, when he impregnated me, he told me to abort our child saying that he couldn’t marry me because I already have a child out of wedlock with another man.
In his defense,Hammed said that the wife was a very promiscuous woman saying that he doubts the paternity of the child.
According to him, he never reported his mother-in-law to the police but that she got herself into trouble with the police when raised a false alarm that he was trying to kidnap his own daughter.
”I even had to pay for her bail to secure her release from the detention.
“I want the court to go ahead and grant my wife’s request . I am glad that she is seeking a dissolution of the marriage because I can’t tolerate her promiscuity any more.
“She has also been denying me sex, anytime I want to exercise my conjugal rights she claims headache and claims she is hypertensive., whereas, she’s is having indiscriminate affairs with other men,” he said.
In his ruling the court President, Mr Mathew Ogungbenle, asked the couple to come along with their respective parents at the next sitting and adjourned the case till June 6.
