Man, 88, divorces wife, 55, after 30-year marriage, alleges infidelity

An Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos on Thursday dissolved a 30-year marriage over alleged promiscuity.
 The court terminated the union when the petitioner, 88-year-old Mr. Gbeminiyi Adeyiga, insisted that he would no longer condone the infidelity of his wife, Sekinat.

Adeyiga had pleaded with the court to dissolve the marriage forthwith, citing his 55-year-old wife’s “unbridled promiscuity, lack of care and battery.”
Adeyiga, who reside at No. 3, Adeyiga St., off Munirat Aleje St., in Ikorodu area of Lagos, had told the court that his wife was sleeping with different men.
“My wife does not take care of me any longer; she does not give me good food and different men come to sleep with her in our home.
“She frustrates me, slaps me and she also wants to kill me. I don’t want to die now, please separate us,’’ he pleaded.
However, Sekinat, a trader, denied the allegations made by her husband, saying she still loved her husband and wanted the marriage to continue.
“I beg the court to settle us. He has never caught me with a man. He always suspected every move to the extent that he smells my pants whenever I go out and come back.
“I want this court to settle this matter. I am not ready for divorce.’’
President of the court, Mrs. Funmi Adeola, however declared that the two would no longer be husband and wife, as the marriage had broken down irretrievably.
“Henceforth, you are no longer to be called husband and wife, as investigation revealed that the wife truly committed the offence as alleged.
“Having tried to settle the differences amicably, there were reports from petitioner that the respondent had refused to heed to a series of advice.
“You are hereby ordered to go your separate ways and the custody of the three children should be determined by each one of them, as they are above 18 years of age.
“However, the children must be jointly groomed toward a better life, as your separation should not affect their upbringing,” Adeola ruled.
