Ekiti Court Ends 11-Year-Old Marriage Over Threats To Life, Others

An Ado-Ekiti Customary Court on Thursday dissolved an 11-year-old marriage between Mr. Adebayo Oluwafemi and his wife, Funmilayo.


The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the couple were separated on grounds of threats to life, wife being troublesome, and no rest of mind for him after the parties had earlier given their evidence on July 14 and judgment was reserved until today.

Oluwafemi, 40, a resident of Omisanjana, along Igbo-Aso in Ado-Ekiti, told the court that his wife was fond of putting up bad behaviours toward him.

He also described her as being an extravagant person, wayward, a slanderer and a pathological liar.

He said that his wife was fond of telling him that she would kill him and that nothing would happen to her.

He said that his wife had said several unprintable things about him whenever they had misunderstandings in the past.

The father of two also described his wife as a wayward woman, saying that she used to engage in night crawling, and not returning home until late at the night.

He said that he could not trust her anymore.

He also said that she was fond of behaving in a way that was pleasing to her; stopped cooking for him and did not care for him any longer.

Oluwafemi told the court that he did not want to commit murder because his wife did not give him peace of mind at home; hence, his decision to call for the divorce.

The petitioner pleaded for the dissolution of the marriage saying he could not cope anymore and prayed for the custody of his children: 10-year-old Peace, a female and the one-and-a-half years old Samson; a male.

But the respondent, Funmilayo, 37, a resident of Omisanjana area in Ado-Ekiti, denied the allegations levelled against her.

She said that her husband had failed in his duty by not providing for their children, especially, their first child that gained admission into a secondary school.

She said that she was the one responsible for the welfare of their children, which she attributed as the major cause of their constant misunderstandings.

Funmilayo said that her husband changed the keys to the major entrances into their house when they had a misunderstanding and since then, she had been staying in her church.

She admitted that though her husband was always buying raw foodstuffs in the house, she said that it was hard for him to give her money for the other needs of his family.

The respondent, however, did not support the dissolution.

The President of the Court, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede, who observed that the marriage had broken down irretrievably; consequently, dissolved the marriage.

Akomolede ruled that the custody of the children should be awarded to the respondent and that Samson should be released to his father when he had attained seven years of age.

She also ordered that the petitioner must be responsible for the education of his children and must allow the respondent to remove her properties from his house.

She also ruled that the petitioner must secure a self-contained apartment for the respondent to house the children, and pay a year’s rent.

Akomolede added that the petitioner would be paying the sum of N10,000 as the monthly upkeep allowance of their children.

The court granted access to the petitioner to see his children whenever he wishes. (NAN)


News Update?Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Sitting Begins October 26

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will on October 26 begin a full hearing of the petition filed by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the declaration of Senator Ademola Adeleke as governor-elect.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the tribunal made this pronouncement after concluding the pre-hearing session on Thursday.

The tribunal was asked to dismiss the applications of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking the discontinuation of the petition brought to it by Governor Oyetola.

Counsel for Oyetola and the APC, Lasun Sanusi, SAN, at the sitting of the tribunal argued that Adeleke’s, PDP’s and INEC’s reliance on a Federal Court High judgment was nothing but an abuse of court process.

Sanusi argued this while replying to separate applications of the trio, seeking the dismissal of the petition based on the already appealed Federal High Court judgment disqualifying Oyetola from contesting the election.

Citing Supreme Court decisions in the case of Jegede Vs INEC, 2021, 14NWLR, Pt 1797, page 409, the counsel said the court had ruled that the signatories to the letter conveying the nomination of a candidate were not the nominators; rather, the nomination was done by party members at the congress, hence, the judgment could not stand.

Meanwhile, the counsel for INEC, Prof. Paul Ananaba, SAN; counsel for Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN and counsel for the PDP, Dr. Alex Izinyon, SAN, agreed that any decision the tribunal would take on the matter would have to wait until the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court decided on it.

They noted that they just decided to argue the applications to have it on record, a position which the tribunal agreed with and put on record.

Also, in other applications totalling nine by the three respondents, they asked the tribunal to strike out some paragraphs of the petition on the grounds that they were either lumped together or not related to the 2022 election.

In response to each of the applications, Sanusi said all the cases cited by the respondents were misconceived, adding that they were not applicable in the instance case.

He cited the case of INEC Vs Otti, 2016, 8NWLR, where the Supreme Court hinted that INEC was supposed to be neutral, arguing that all the processes filed before the panel have not portrayed the commission’s neutrality.

Sanusi further argued that the applications filed by the respondents were only meant to prevent the tribunal from focusing on hearing the petition on merit, asking the panel to dismiss the applications.

Subsequently, counsel for all parties in the matter agreed to begin the full hearing starting with the calling of witnesses on October 26.

In his ruling, the tribunal declared the pre-hearing session concluded and announced that the pre-hearing conference report would be presented on October 17.
