A 58-year-old driver, Kasali Raji, has urged an Agege Customary Court to dissolve his 24-year-marriage with his wife, Toyin, over alleged lack of love and unfaithfulness.

‎Raji told the court that he was tired of his wife’s attitude to family matters.

The petitioner said that he had to move out of his matrimonial home in 2017 because he no longer loved his wife.

“I stopped having sexual intercourse with my wife over seven years ago.

“I have not been living with my wife for the past 15 months now,” he told the court.

Raji said that his wife refused to have another child after the birth of their only son, who is now 22 years old.

“There was a time my wife got pregnant but aborted it without my consent; when l challenged her, she told me not to disturb her.

“I prayed the court to dissolve this marriage in the interest of peace,’’ he said.

The respondent, Toyin, 47, denied the allegations, saying that she was not ready for the divorce.

Toyin told the court that she was still in love with her husband.

She, however, said her husband was an inconsiderate person, who wanted her to carry another pregnancy nine months after she gave birth to her first child.

“After I gave birth to our only son, nine months later, my husband forcefully had sex with me in spite of my health condition.

“When I discovered l was pregnant, I had to abort it because of my health and our economic situation at that time.

“We couldn’t afford to take good care of our child or even feed ourselves,’’ she said.

The respondent also alleged that for the past one year her husband had stopped eating at home.

“He later stopped coming home and only sends money to his son whenever there is a need for it,’’ she said.

The court President, Mrs. Ibironke Elabor, said that since the respondent was still in love with her husband, the court would give both parties an opportunity for reconciliation.

Elabor adjourned the case until April 23 for alternative dispute resolution.
