Court dissolves 5-yr-old marriage over childlessness

An Ilorin Area Court on Tuesday dissolved the  five-year-old marriage between one Aminat Tunde and her husband, Jimoh, over lack of a child in the union.

The 43-year-old house wife had approached the court to dissolve the marriage over the  lack of  a child  in the  marriage.

The petitioner, a resident of  Fate area of   Ilorin, also told the court that her husband was too harsh and fond of  placing  curses on her.

“My husband always blame me for  our situation and at times shouts  at me in  public,” she said.

According to her, their marriage was contracted in 2008 and was yet to produce any child.

She prayed the court to end the marriage, saying  her husband was making life difficult for her.

Her husband  did not object to the prayer of his wife, saying, she was free to go.

“My wife’s  wayward life style has forced  me not to have any pity for her situation,” he said.

He prayed the court to grant the prayer of his wife without any claim.

The presiding judge, Mr Ibrahim Abdulquadri,  dissolved the  marriage and issued a certificate of divorce to the plaintiff. (NAN)
