‘My Husband Would Ask Me To Sleep On The Mat Whenever He Brings Another Woman Home’

A housewife, Busayo Ogunjobi, has urged an Ado-Ekiti Customary Court in Ekiti State to dissolve her 13-year-old marriage to Ayodele Ogunjobi over alleged frequent beating and adultery.

Twenty-six-year-old Busayo also urged the court to dissolve the marriage over her husband’s alleged lack of care for the only child of the union.


She told the court that Ayodele was fond of going about with different women, adding that anytime her husband came home with a woman, he would ask her to sleep on the mat.

“My lord, anytime my husband brought home a woman, he would ask me to sleep on the mat so that the woman  can sleep on our matrimonial bed,’’ she said.

She told the court that Ayodele denied being the biological father of the only child of their marriage.

According to her, Ayodele abandoned her and the child when the child was three months old.

Ayodele, 32, denied beating his wife because of another woman.

He told the court he did not believe  the said child was his, adding that  he did some private investigations which did not favour the petitioner.

This he said was the reason he did not provide for the upkeep of both mother and child.

The court’s president, Mr Joseph Ogunsimi, adjourned the case till  February 11 for further hearing.
