The 13 year old marriage between one Musiliu Yusuf 50, and Hassana 39 has been dissolved due to serious claims of infidelity and lack of love in the union. The woman filled for a divorce suit against her husband. But hearing from the man’s side of the story, he told Igando Customary Court in Lagos. That the wife is almost a prostitute who sleeps around with different men. He said:
“My wife committed adultery, she got pregnant for one of her lovers in our matrimonial home.
My wife is promiscuous; my fellow landlords are her boyfriends. She got pregnant for one of them, and they mock and make jest of me whenever they see me.
I stopped making love to her in June 2014 due to her infidelity and in 2015, she told me she was pregnant.
I rejected the pregnancy and even after delivery of the baby, I refused to care for her because the baby is not mine,”
“I packed out from the house I built on four different occasions because I fear for my life as my wife always beat me on any slight provocation.
I finally ran out on June 14, 2015 and refused to go back just to save my life because I don’t want to die.”
But the woman’s side of the story was quite different as she claimed it was rather the husband who wanted to kill her. She gave this as her reason for filling for divorce to end their union which has lasted for 13 years now. She said:
“He threatened to kill me so that he can take over what we both laboured for. He always boasts that nobody will question him if he kills me.
We jointly bought a coaster bus and two plots of land. We used a plot to build a house, the other a school.
My husband is suspicious of my moves; every man I talk to is my boyfriend. He has no trust, whatsoever in me. On many occasions, he had abandoned me and the children. He once left the house for a year.
It was because I refused to give him some money he requested that he rejected our last child,” she said.
After hearing from the two parties. The President of the court Adegboyega Omilola had no other choice but to dissolve the marriage since they are both tired of each other. he anunced:
“Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.
The court pronounces the marriage between Hassana Yusuf and Musiliu Yusuf dissolved today; both parties henceforth cease to be husband and wife.
Both are free to go their separate ways without any hindrances and molestation.”
