A woman identified as Mrs. Musilimat Olasuyi shocked the Igando Customary Court in Lagos hen she mentioned that her husband, Oluwagbemiga, gave another man the permission to make love to her right in their home.
According to the Punch, the woman revealed that she was charmed to sleep with the man due to her husband’s selfish ambition.
In her words:
“It was not my fault. I did not voluntarily submit myself but the man in question charmed me to make love to me with my husband’s agreement all because of his selfish ambition,” she said.
The petitioner said that her husband threw her belongings out of her matrimonial home during her absence during which the money she kept (over N800, 000) kept inside her different boxes were stolen.
“I went to the hospital to take care of my daughter from my first marriage, who suffered from a gas explosion. There, I was told that my husband came with some boys to our matrimonial home to pack all my belongings outside.
“After some days; I came home and I discovered that all my boxes and bags had been ransacked; some were missing and my money was stolen.
“My jewellery valued at N250, 000 and the N250, 000 was given to me by my son-in-law to start the construction works on his landed property close to us were missing.
She then went further to say:
“Also, N100,000 for my customer’s cassava (garri), N250,000 being our mosque’s money kept in my custody and N30,000 my trading money got missing.’’
Musilimat submitted a written petition to the court seeking redress and judicial actions against her husband. The estranged wife wanted to know if it was proper for her husband to throw her property out without an order from the court.
She also demanded to know if her husband would not be liable for the cost of her lost money and property.
The petitioner was also requesting the court to know if her husband should not pay for the inconvenience as she and the only child of the marriage are homeless.
She pleaded with the court to dissolve the union saying that she no longer loves her husband.
However, the petitioner’s husband, Oluwagbemiga, accused his wife of infidelity.
“My wife does not have respect for her marriage vow, she makes love to her concubine on our matrimonial bed. My wife is diabolical, she comes home with different charms and objects; she gave me a soap on nine consecutive times to bath with.”
The respondent consented to the dissolution of marriage, saying the love between the two of them had long faded.
Akinniyi urged the estranged couple to maintain peace and adjourned the case until April 26 for judgment.
