A 40-year-old housewife, Amudalat Afolabi, has reportedly told an Ilorin Area Court that her husband, Tajudeen, sent her packing because she refused to terminate a six-month-old pregnancy.
Amudalat made this known when she testified in a divorce petition filed against her by Tajudeen in Ilorin on Thursday September 22.
“My husband sent me away from our matrimonial home because I refused to terminate the six- pregnancy I am carrying,” she said.
Amadalat, 40, did not oppose the dissolution of the 20-year-old marriage, but described Tajudeen as an irresponsible man.
She reported said she was tired of being enslaved by “a useless man”.
Tajudeen, 50, a residence of Edun Area, Ilorin, had prayed the court to dissolve the marriage due to his wife’s alleged infidelity.
He said they got married in 1996 and had five children, who were all living with him because their mother had left the matrimonial home.
“I am fed up with her waywardness. She is not stable and always frame excuses for her actions. I pray the court to put an end to this union because my wife can kill me as she moves around town like dog.”
The Area court judge, Mr. AbdulQudri Ibrahim, dissolved the marriage between the two parties and issued the certificate of divorce to the complainant.
