An Oja’ba/Mapo Grade ‘C’ customary court, sitting at Mapo Hall, Ibadan, Oyo State, has granted divorce to a mother of two, Adetomilola Olanrewaju.
According to the woman, she demanded divorce because her husband, Gbolahan was a perpetual drunkard. She told the court that he always came home very late at night and beat her on a regular basis. She spoke further:
“He’s a habitual smoker. He doesn’t take care of me and the children. He is also troublesome. There’s no love between us again. I’m fed up with him,” Adetomilola told the court.
The respondent, Gbolahan, said: “I do not accept the allegations because of our children. If she says that she wants separation, I’m ready, but I want to take custody of my children.”
President of the court, Chief Odunade Ademola, in dissolving the marriage said, “Having gone through the evidence of both parties, divorce on repayment of no dowry is hereby granted. Custody of the children is given to the plaintiff. The defendant should be responsible for their education and health services. He should be paying N6, 000 monthly as feeding allowance for the children until they grow up.”
