A Grade “C” Customary Court sitting in Iseyin in Iseyin Council Area of Oyo State has dissolved a one-month-old marriage over the wife’s alleged infidelity.
The marriage, which was contracted in October, came to an end when the President of the Court, Chief Adelodun Oyegbenle, pronounced the estranged marriage dissolved.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that Amuda Amidu had approached the court to seek dissolution of the union on the ground of infidelity of his wife, Yemisi Amidu.
He said: “I have incontrovertible evidence against Yemisi to establish that she is not deserving of bearing my name or being called my wife.
“I have warned before that if this marriage is not dissolved at the earliest time possible, anything can happen to her, because the more I see her, the more I get angry.
“I should have listened to my family members who advised me against marrying her.”
In his judgement, the court’s president bemoaned Yemisi’s refusal to appear in court despite court summons and tagged it “lack of respect for the court.
“The case involves threats to life and with what we have heard and seen, if this union is not dissolved now, their continuous stay together may lead to death or serious injury.
“I, therefore, hereby pronounce the marriage dissolved.”
