Mr Saheed Eniola, an Ibadan- based businessman has pleaded with a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve his marriage over his wife’s alleged infidelity.
Mr Eniola told the court on Wednesday that his wife has been caught several times sleeping with his immediate younger brother.
According to him, he doesn’t think their children belongs to him and his wife’s consistent romance with his brother has caused division in his extended family.
He added that all the set backs he experienced was because his wife always lay curses on him.
He said, “The real reason I consented to Kafayat’s request for dissolution of our marriage is that she is evil and has torn my extended family apart because of her waywardness.
“Anytime I went on my business trip, family members, especially my dad, usually caught Kafayat sleeping with my immediate younger brother; despite his warning, Kafayat kept luring my brother into unholy romance.
“My father has threatened to disown me if I don’t send her away.
“Despite the problem, I have never failed to be responsible to the two children except that I no longer live with Kafayat.”
“I have pleaded with Kafayat to give me the custody of the children, but she would not listen; she might mislead them.”
On her part, Kafayat said her husband failed to carry out his duties as a father.
She said, “We stopped living together since 12 years ago, and Saheed does not make any provision for our children.
“In fact, the second child cannot recognise him either as a father or anything because she had never sighted him.
“Though he requested to take charge of the first child, I refused to give him because he would not send him to school.
“Even when the child was dying of sickness in the University Teaching Hospital, Ibadan, Saheed did nothing about it, though I told him.”
However, she gave no response on the allegations of infidelity leveled against her by her husband.
Chief Ademola Odunade who presided over the court asked the couples to come with their relatives and their two children.
The case was adjourned to Dec. 17 for judgment.
