Pastor Requests Divorce
A Customary Court in Igando Lagos state has on Tuesday, 17 August granted Chijioke Ogu his request for divorce over his wife’s alleged stubbornness.
Mr. Adeniyi Koledoye, the President of the Court said since the petitioner insisted on divorce even after several interventions, the court has nothing more to do but to
grant his request.
“The court hereby pronounces the marriage between Mr Chijoke and Chineye Ogu dissolved today.
Both of you henceforth, cease to be husband and wife”.
“Each of you should go your separate ways unmolested. The court wishes both of you well in your future endeavours.”
The petitioner was further instructed by Mr. Koledoye to take responsibility for their only child, and also pay a severance allowance of N250,000 to his ex-wife to enable her to move on with her life.
Chijioke, made it known to the court in his petition that he wants his 20-years old marriage dissolved with claims that his wife is too stubborn and doesn’t listen to his instructions.
“After our baby was delivered, she insisted her mother must visit. I disagreed with her because her mother would be a burden on us because she was old and sick.
“Besides, I don’t have money to give her mother or buy things when she will be leaving.Advertisement
“She disobeyed me and eventually sent for her mother without my consent, she stayed with us for two months.
“After her mother left, my mother came but my wife put up a different attitude and denied her food on so many occasions.
“I travelled to her hometown to report to her family but she refused to change.”
In her defense, she denied being stubborn but said that it was her right to choose who stayed to help her after she was delivered of the baby.
It is our custom that the wife’s mother comes to assist in taking care of the baby.
“He initially suggested that his older sister come to stay with me. I refused because it will not sound well for me to send his sister on errands, she said.
Also he didnt inform me before inviting his mother over to the house.”
She added that her husband abandoned her and their child for over two years, claiming the elders in his church advised him to leave the marriage.
