The plaintiff told the court that the union was blessed with six children, who were aged 38, 36, 33, 31, 29 and 27, respectively.

Oseni sought for the dissolution on grounds of his wife’s stubbornness, frequent fighting, provocation, trouble making and threat to life, adding that the woman had not been submissive and had a domineering attitude in the house.

“I have lost my authority as the head of the house because my wife would always take laws into her hand. She is so rude, stubborn and wicked; sometimes we stay at home without talking to each other for days. Even one of our sons who is married is living in my house with his family. I can’t send my son’s wife any message, anytime I do that, my wife would start shouting that I am sleeping with my son’s wife. Please dissolve us to avoid bloodshed, I am totally fed up” Oseni said. 

Meanwhile, Tayo, who confirmed Oseni’s complaints about her told the court that she agrees with the husband’s prayers.

“All I just want is that the court should help me appeal to my husband not to harm me or do anything bad to me in future” she said.

Responding, Oseni promised not to harm or hurt her because she is the mother of his children.

The court president, Olalekan Akande, dissolved the union and asked both parties to go their separate ways.

“The court has tried in settling this marriage, but the plaintiff told me that the wife’s family was not ready for settlement and he observed that her family has been on her side,” Akande said.

He said it was imperative to end the marriage in order to avoid future conflict.
