She thus pleaded with the court to separate them and give her custody of their children.
“I have been the one shouldering the responsibility of our home since I got married to my husband 12 years ago.
“I feed him and our children, clothe them and send our children to school.
“He doesn’t know how much the children are paying in school, neither does he know what our house rent is.
“He neglects me and our children and sometimes abandon the home for months.
“He has no shame and goes around boasting I carry out all his responsibilities because I’m head over heels in love with him.
“My lord, he believes I can’t do without him, but I want him to know that I regard him as dead and I can no more live with a corpse, “the plaintiff told the court.
The defendant failed to show up in court after being served a court summon and court hearing twice.
Giving his judgment, the court president, Chief Ademola Odunade, dissolved their union and granted the plaintiff custody of their three children.
He further ordered the defendant to pay the sum of N8, 000 monthly as their children’s feeding allowance and take up the responsibility of their education and health care.
