FOR THE PAST 7 YEARS, MY HUSBAND FREQUENTLY BEATS ME INTO MENTAL STUPOR, WIFE TELLS COURT

An Ibadan based trader and mother of two; Yetunde Kolapo, has urged an Iletuntun Customary Court to dissolve her seven-year-old marriage to her husband, Olamilekan Kolapo, because he used to beat her to stupor.

Yetunde, who resides at Academy area of Ibadan, told the court on Monday that her husband, Olamilekan, constantly subjects her to battery, which sometimes result in her being hospitalised, and then abandoned.

She said: “ In the past seven years that I married Olamilekan, I have had no rest of mind, as his constant punches on me usually results into my being admitted in hospital.

In addition, he does little or nothing about fending for our two children and me. In short, it is one day, one trouble in our home.

My lord, I am completely fedup with him.” She also prayed the court to grant her custody of the two children from the union.

Olamilekan, who did not oppose the divorce suit, however said that his wife often starved him of sexual intercourse. He added: “My lord, Yetunde usually denies me sex, which is an integral part of what stabilises a marriage.”
