A barber who is based in Ibadan, Abdulahi Olabamiji, on Monday told a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, that, Yetunde, his wife was wayward and he had caught her in the act with men on eight different occasions.
Oladimeji, who resides in Ojo area, Ibadan, said this in his counter argument while he testified before Chief Ademola Odunade, the president of the court.
He also alleged that one of Yetunde’s lovers even had the temerity to attend a ceremony which involved his own family sometime ago.
“My lord, while Yetunde was deeply in those adulterous atrocities, I called the attention of her parents and other relatives to them, but they kept on prevailing on me to exercise patience with her.
“One day, after Yetunde temporarily abandoned me, I went to visit her parents to discuss with them. I was, however, shocked when I saw Yetunde on the laps of another man in the house.
“What happened at the scene made me conclude that her parents were backing her promiscuous attitude and I lost interest in her completely.
“She keeps disgracing me and I don’t want the children to be given to her because she will corrupt them”, Oladimeji said.
Yetunde, who resides in Foko area of Ibadan and also fashion designer, reportedly filed a petition for divorce citing threat to her life as the main reason why she wanted the court to dissolve the marriage of 16 years.
She said that because to herhusband’s “troublesome character“, she has been locked up on three different occasions in a Correctional Centre. Yetunde alleged, “My life is not safe in his home because he constantly threatens me with a broken bottle.
“Aside, Abdulahi also steals my money. Worse, he often molests my parents by treating them with disdain.” Yetunde requested that the Court make the children be in her possession.
Chief Odunade, who led two other abitrators, Alhaji Suleiman Apanpa and Chief Rafiu Raji, dissolved the union “in the interest of a peaceful living.”
Also, he awarded custody of the two Kids produced by the marriage to Olabamiji and ordered Yetunde to approach the court anytime she desires to meet the kids.
