Risikat Adegboyega, a mum of four children has lost her 16-year-old marriage as an Igando Customary Court in Lagos granted the demand of her husband to end the matrimony because she requires a bribe before sex.
The court leader, Adeniyi Koledoye, held on Thursday that since the claimant emphasised on divorce in spite of interventions, the court is left with no alternative other than to grant his wish.
“The court hereby dissolves the marriage between Pastor Abayomi Adegboyega and Mrs Risikat Adegboyega; you henceforth cease to be husband and wife.
“Each of you should go his or her separate ways unmolested. The court wishes both of you well in your future endeavours.
“The custody of the first and third children of the marriage are awarded to the petitioner while that of the second and fourth children are awarded to the respondent, their mother.
“The petitioner must be paying N10, 000 monthly for the feeding of the two children in the woman’s custody and must be responsible for their education and general welfare,” he held.
Mr Koledoye also directed that the petitioner should pay N200,000 to the woman for her to move on with her life.
My wife starves me of sex, she will never allow me to sleep with her unless I give her money or buy her a gift,” he had told the court.
He vowed to kill himself if the court would not dissolve the union which produced four children.
“Risikat should never come near me, I do not want to have anything to do with her again.
