An Igando customary court, on monday, dissolved the marriage of a 50-year-old teacher, Musiliu Yusuf, and his wife, Hassana, over irreconcilable differences.
Yusuf had told the court that his wife was impregnated by one of her lovers in their matrimonial home.
The man also said his wife was in the habit of beating him on the slightest provocation, forcing him to pack out of his matrimonial home.
“My wife is promiscuous, my fellow landlords are her boyfriends. She got pregnant for one of them, they mock and make jest of me whenever they see me.
“i stopped making love to her in june 2014 due to her infidelity and in 2015, she told me she was pregnant.
“i rejected the pregnancy and even after delivery of the baby, i refused to care for her because the baby is not mine,” the estranged husband said.
The respondent tendered the list of hotels visited by his wife and some of her lovers as exhibits.
“I packed out from the house i built on four different occasions, because i fear for my life as my wife always beat me on any slight provocation.
“I finally ran out on june 14, 2015 and refused to go back just to save my life because i don’t want to die,” he said.
Yusuf said contrary to his wife’s claims that they both built the house and school, he never collected any money from her.
The respondent also presented as exhibits all the title documents of the properties which were in his name.
