An Ado-Ekiti Customary Court in Ekiti State  has  dissolved a seven-year-old marriage between Olubodun Kunle and his wife, Dupe, over assault, adultery, frequent fighting and lack of care for the children.

court-hammerForty-two-year-old Kunle told the court that he wanted a divorce because his wife voluntarily packed out of their home a year ago and dumped the children with his mother.

He added that  she  was fond of quarrelling with their neighbours and would not  take  to corrections.

The father of three  further said  that his wife  was fond of leaving home early and coming back late  without caring    for the  welfare of the children and him.

According to him, he once caught his wife with another man in her shop and later got to know that the man was her former boyfriend.

Thirty-two-year-old Dupe denied the allegations of frequent fighting and adultery, and told the court that all efforts to reconcile with her  husband proved abortive.

The court president, Mr. Joseph Ogunsemi, in his judgment, held that the marriage had broken down irretrievably, adding that there was no room for amicable settlement any longer.

Ogunsemi dissolved the marriage and  awarded custody of the children to the wife. He also ordered that the husband should be responsible for the payment of the children’s school fees.
