Samuel Adedeji from Ibadan has approached the Mapo Customary Court seeking a divorce from his wife, Temiloluwa over threat to his life.
“For too long, I have had to cope with all sorts of humiliation, insults, abuses in addition to emotional and psychological torture which I have often suffered from her.
“When Temiloluwa’s troublemaking reached its peak, she started beating me and tearing off my clothes.
“Recently, she gave me three dirty slaps in the night and was attempting to stab me to death that same night when I had to run for my dear life.
“Temiloluwa has no regard for anybody. Now, she has left my home and I need to move on too. There is no more love between both of us.”
Temioluwa was absent in court and the court’s bailiff informed the Arbitrators, led by the President, Chief Ademola Odunade that he had served her notices of court hearing but she deliberately ignored the notices.
After careful consideration, Odunade dissolved the union and ordered that the copy of the judgment be served on the respondent in order for her to be aware of the latest in the case.
