A herbalist, Kasali Yinusa has pleaded with a Mapo Grade ‘A’ Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve his nine year-old union to his estranged wife, Abosede on the grounds that her adulterous lifestyle was having negative effects on their daughter.

Yunusa, accused Abosede of being short tempered, fighting every now and then with people in the neighbourhood.

“I’m most unhappy with the high level of immorality Abosede has impacted on our only child. Since, Abosede and the child no longer stay with me, I notice that the child is exhibits some bad manners whenever she visits me.

”Abosede is too wasteful. I stock up her shop with goods but at the end of the sales, she squanders the proceeds,” he alleged.

The petitioner, consequently, begged to be given custody of the child.

However, Abosede did not comment on most of the contending issues raised by the petitioner.

Abosede, who is a trader, pointed out that her husband never played the role of a good father.

”He refuses to pay our child’s school fees. In fact, that was the reason why I started going to the church, seeking divine intervention.

”He gets angry whenever my baby sings church hymns. My lord, whenever Yinusa extorts money from me and I’m unable to provide it, he beats me up.

“Also, I am the sixth wife in his home. He married another woman when I was three months pregnant,” ” Abosede stated.

Delivering judgment, the court’s President, Mrs S.M. Akintayo held that there was no marriage to be dissolved between Yinusa and Abosede because their union, initially, was not based on traditional laws.

”None of the parties stated that there was payment of bride price and giving of gifts, which are essential requirements before a traditional marriage can be considered as valid.

”The fact that a man and a woman lived together and had children, does not mean that they are married,” she held.

Akintayo granted custody of the seven-year-old child to Abosede because she was in a better position to cater for her.

The judge granted the order restraining the respondent from harassing, intimidating and interfering in the personal life of the petitioner henceforth.
