Nigeria: Oyo - Court Dissolves 5-Year-Old Marriage 'For Peace to Reign'

21 January 2021

A customary court sitting at Mapo, Ibadan, on Wednesday dissolved a five-year-old marriage between a businessman, Abiola Azeez and his wife, Ayobami in the interest of peace.

The president of the court, Chief Ademola Odunade, also advised Azeez to file a separate suit in order to claim his property, allegedly taken away by Ayobami.

Azeez, a resident of Muslim-Odinjo area of Ibadan, had approached the court to dissolve the marriage over uncomplimentary behaviour by his ex-wife.

"I made efforts to build a house for her, but she rejected it.

"Instead, Ayobami demanded for N2 million," which to my surprise, she squandered.

"He also said while away on business trip, Ayobami allegedly stole his plasma TV, a refrigerator, a set of chairs, a generating set and two mattresses.
