Mr Gabriel Gbelelola, a 49-year-old civil servant has dragged his wife, Bisilola, to an Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos, seeking dissolution of his 13-year-old marriage.
“My wife keeps late nights and at times she does not come home at all, she pays no attention to the family again,” he said adding that she usually receive calls from “different men in the night and she has denied me of my séxual rights for a while now. She is not submissive at all and when I report her to her family, they usually take side with her.”
The President of the court, Remilekun Adesanya, observed that there was still room for reconciliation in the marriage. She adjourned the case till July 18 for possible reconciliation.
