A 5-year old marriage between one Ayobami and Balikis Ismaheel has been dissolved by the ibadan customary court.
The marriage was dissolved on grounds of adultery, gambling and deception and Ayobami ordered to pay a monthly allowance of N8,000 for the feeding of their kids as well as take care of their schooling and welfare.
Defending herself before the judge, Balikis said; “By providence one day, I came across some of the children he had earlier gotten from some women. “Ayobami, however, denied knowing the children. “Neighbours told me that he was a crafty man who usually abandoned women after sleeping with them or they have had children for him. “In fact, I was told that he pushed off his last wife from the staircase with the intention of killing her. “His irresponsibility is based on the fact that he is a gambler and doesn’t return home until he spends all his money at gambling outlets.
“He is such a wicked man because there was a time when he was keeping my little contributions in his bank account and he refused to give me the money,” she said.
NAN reports that Ayobami on his part accused Balikis of infidelity. “My lord, when I was away at Ogbomoso sometimes ago, a certain man who drove a Jeep used to sleep with her in my house. “Worst still, I stumbled across a text message sent by either that same man or another asking her to gear up for the s.exual act they were to have next. “In addition, my lord, one of the children Balikis had for me doesn’t belong to me because of her promiscuity,’’ he said.
