Woman, 20, seeks dissolution of 3-yr-old marriage

The petitioner told the court that all efforts at showing love to her husband had failed as he was always quarrelling with her.

“Sometimes,  I do menial jobs to provide  food for the family.

“I buy my husband gifts like shoes  and pay our only daughter’s  school fees to show how much I want to keep my marriage.

”But my husband, who is a farmer and a commercial motorcyclist,  rather than take  care of us  whenever he has money, will go out with friends to drink  local gin.

“I was once hospitalised  after my blood pressure went up  and I fainted,’’ she said.

The petitioner, who said no dowry was paid by her husband, maintained  that she was no longer interested in the union and urged  the court to grant her custody of their two-year-old daughter.

She also prayed for an order of the court to  retrieve her property, saying these include  hair dryer and  clothes.

The respondent, however,  denied all the allegations, except that concerning unpaid dowry.

The three-man panel  headed Mrs Yemisi Ojo  ruled that a search warrant be issued on the defendant in order to retrieve the property of the petitioner  in the house.

Ojo, who adjourned the case till  July 3 for continuation of hearing, directed  the defendant to come to court with all his witnesses on the said date.
