OSOGBO – An Osogbo Grade I Customary Court on Tuesday dissolved a 10-year old marriage between one Rasheedat Muibideen and her husband Kazeem.
Rasheedat, who said her marriage was blessed with three children, said that her husband always beat her and refused to give her rest of mind.
“We have been married for 10years and we have three children who are living with me.
“We do not understand each other and we always fight.
“He beats me so much and he does not care for me and my children. This situation has made me develop high blood pressure.
“We have been separated for two years and he did not bother to know anything about us. I reported the situation to his parents, but they could not resolve it.
“I pray the court to separate us so I can be free from his troubles,” she said.
The defendant, Kazeem, did not appear in court.
The President of the Court, Chief Gabriel Oparanti, in his judgment dissolved the marriage.
“After hearing the reason and plea for dissolution, the court hereby agrees to the demand of the plaintiff.
“The defendant has refused to appear in court on two occasions which shows that he is not interested in pursuing the case; the marriage is therefore dissolved.
“The custody of the children is awarded to the plaintiff and the defendant is to take responsibility of their feeding, education and welfare,” Oparanti ordered. (NAN)
