…As Kaduna Businesswoman drags husband to court over lack of care***

A 71-year old business man has dragged his 52 year old wife before an Igando Customary Court seeking dissolution of his 35 year old marriage, even as the wife, a trader, Mrs. Kudirat Ajayi urged the court to ignore him, as she slept with her brother-in-law, because she mistook him for her husband.

Ajayi’s husband, Akande, is seeking the dissolution of their 35-year-old marriage, accusing her of infidelity.

”I was in bed in the night when my husband’s younger brother came to the house my husband rented for me.

“I thought it was my husband who normally come to the house at that particular time between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. to play and sleep with me.

“It was after he finished making love to me that I realised that he was not my husband.

“When I queried him, he claimed that my husband had traveled that was why he came to have sex with me.

“I reported the case to my brother’s wife, who advised me not to tell my brother so that peace can reign in the family.”

The respondent said that her husband treats the children of the other wives better than hers.

The mother of four denied being fetish as claimed by husband.

Ajayi prayed the court not to grant her husband’s wish for the dissolution of their marriage that she still love him.

The petitioner, Akande, approached the court to terminate his 35-year-old marriage accusing wife of infidelity.

He said that his wife was wayward and adulterous that her man friend was claiming paternity of one of their children.

“When I married her, I rented an apartment for her because I have other wives and I don’t want them to live together.

“I started hearing from people in the area that my wife was having affair with a man, initially I ignored it until her lover came claiming ownership of one of my children.

“The man eventually came to the house but I refused to open the door for him.

“When I questioned my wife, she confessed that the man slept with her but it did not result in pregnancy.”

The 71-year-old businessman said that his wife was fetish.

“I once caught her burying something in my compound, I accosted her and tried to remove what she buried there but I could not.

“I went out before I returned, she had cemented the place.”

He begged the court to end the marriage that he was no longer interested that the love he once had for her had faded.

The president of the court, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, urged the two parties to maintain peace and adjourned the case until Aug.22 for judgment

Meanwhile, in another development, a business woman, Bilkisu Lawal on Monday dragged her husband, Ahmed Musa, to a Sharia Court ll sitting at Magajin Gari, Kaduna State, seeking divorce over lack of care.

“I have been married to Musa for two years now. Since we got married, I have been living in my parent’s house.

”He has refused to provide a house for me to stay.

“He paid N20,000 as my bride price. I am willing to pay him back his money. I also pray the court to terminate the union,’’ she said.

Musa who lives in Kabala Coustine, Kaduna, accepted the allegations on him.

“I have no means to rent an apartment for my wife. The court should grant her the divorce,’’ he said.

After listening to the arguments of the couple, the Judge, Murtala Nasir, adjourned the case until July 18 for judgment.

He also ordered the complainant to come along with her parents on the adjourned date.
