A banker, Mr. Olawale Adeyele, who was dragged before an Agege customary court, had his four-year old marriage crumbled like a pack of badly arranged cards as the court dissolved it with immediate effect.
The marriage dissolution was sequel to an application filed by his wife, Oladunni, a program presenter with an lkeja based television station.
Olawale had told the court that his wife lacked care for him and the children, adding that she transfered her marital responsibility to the housemaid who always cooked their food and arranged his bed.
He alleged that Oladunni was dating her boss, saying he got to know when he was invited to a social function. “I suspected that something was going on (between the wife and boss), and when I confronted her, she flared up and rained curses on me”.
Olawale shed tears as he narrated these events and then pleaded that the court should not dissolve the marriage, because he still loved the wife passionately.
However, Oladunni alleged that her husband indulged in beating her mother when she (the mother) came to help her nurse their baby. The situation, according to her, gave her serious concern and made her lose interest in the marriage.
