Court dissolves 17-year marriage over disagreement on sex


courtIBADAN – A Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan on Friday dissolved a 17-year-old marriage between Rukayat and Rasaq Muniru, over disagreement on sexual intercourse.
The President of the court, Mr Ademola Odunade, in his judgment, held that the court dissolved the marriage because it considered the wellbeing of everyone important .
“The court had fulfilled the mandatory adjournments, but Muniru still refused to show up which meant admission of guilt.
He ordered Muniru to pay a monthly feeding allowance of N6,000 as well as take responsibility for the education of the children.
Rukayat had told the court that Muniru was so shameless that he did not mind having sexual intercourse with her in the presence of their grown up children.[eap_ad_2]
“Muniru rented a single face-to-face apartment room for me at Olunloyo Area of Ibadan with four grown up children, boys and girls, because he has married another wife.
“He sees nothing wrong in having sexual intercourse with me in their very presence as matured as they are, 15, 13 years of ages.
“Whenever, the children saw us making love, I used to remind him of the negative implications it might have on them, especially the need for another room for them.
“Anytime I refused him sex, he beats the hell out of me, injures me and tears my clothes.  On a number of occasions, I reported him to his parents but there was no change.
“Muniru does not cater for the children and does not even want to know whether they are educated or not,” Rukayat said.  (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
